The week that was (not)

A week of earlies gave plenty of birding opportunities - all of which (bar cuckoo success) were fraught with dipping!

Holy Island causeway with Phil added whimbrel to the yearlist but no joy with our main quarries - Kentish plover or white-rumped sandpiper, while on Friday news of a male red backed shrike at Newbiggin provided another unsuccessful trip out.

Wonder what the strike rate will be this weekend?...
