Well a thoroughly enjoyable day yesterday. Visited the Dinosaur display at Woodhorn (a little expensive when you add car park charge on top). The 'bairns enjoyed it and some of the museum features kept them amused (especially opening the 'netty' door).
Lunch followed by some 'rock-pooling' at St Marys Island and I was knackered so I packed them off home and cut the lawn.
The rest of the week it is back to the patch to see what has happened. In the middle of the bay sea-watching is not always productive, however today numerous Shearwaters were moving North with the Gannets. Manx and Sooty were identified but none of the bigger ones which passed Spurn earlier in the day.
A sudden fall of migrants included meadow pipits, stonechats and whinchats in good numbers.
