Great Northern

A quick visit to Druridge tonight with nothing much to report other than a splendid summer-plumaged great northern diver offshore, not too far off either. You don't often see the 'big' divers in Druridge Bay in summer plumage so this was all the better.

There were also five red-throats offshore in a variety of plumages.

Not much to report on the pools, migrant waders today numbered 13 ringed plover, 2 dunlin and a curlew.

This grey partridge was in front of the little hide, the other half of the pair was, unknown to me, even closer, I only realised when it flew out from in front of the hide calling.
