Up north for a hour or two.

Its was one of those "Where do fancy going" days today. Its been a while since me and Jan filled a flask and headed off for a few hours out of the area. So eventually we headed for Druridge and Cresswell.
Well the weather started to close in not long after we reached here and it was The Great North bike ride today also so great care had to be taken driving along certain stretches of the coastal roads. These riders had pedelled from Seahouses and finished at Tynemouth!..excellent effort and no doubt has raised alot of money for worthy causes.

Six Ruff at Cresswell on the exposed sand area in front of the hide along with a Common Sand and a few Dunlins.

Oddie hide at Druridge - not the best visit either but a couple of juv. Dabchicks kept us entertained. On the return leg from here to the car I spotted a area of grass flattened in the undergrowth which lead to the north pool area, this held Max's attention also with him almost vanishing from sight until I called him. Otter or Fox suspected for this path....the dog's shown no signs of being interested in Rabbits yet.

Not one of best visits to this area today bird wise, but always nice to get up here. Especially for a ice-cream from the Cresswell shop and sit at Snab point eating it whilst doing a bit sea watching.
