Gropper and Otter

Lapwing Ponteland Hide, Hauxley.
Green Sandpiper  still present and a few Common Sandpipers. In the dunes plenty of grasshoppers (Common Field Grasshoppers .. I presume?)

Chorthippus brunneus

East Chev produced: 4 Black-tailed Godwits, 5 Ruff, Greenshank, Dunlin and Little Gull. A Peregrine Falcon put in an appearance for the third day in a row.

The Spotted Cake remained out of sight all moning. If it is not seen again, it may have met one of the Otters. The Otter appeared in the Crake's favourite spot and was followed along the reed edge by two young Moorhen making sure they knew its exact position.
