Out at the weekend off up the coast on my bike on Saturday morning. And unusually, a potential lifer had stayed around. In fact, managed to add three species to my UK year list, quite unusual for October. Not only that, one was the target lifer, and another was new for my Northumberland life list (taking it 206).
At Druridge Pools:
153. Red-necked Phalarope - the lifer :)
Then on the beach at the mouth of Chevington burn:
154. Shore Lark
And finally, at East Chevington, an impressive, loudly singing
155. Cetti's Warbler (new for Northumberland, for me)
156. Lesser Redpoll (at last!)
World life list: 536 (Terek Sandpiper, Abu Dhabi, UAE; September 2019)
UK life list: 228 (Red-backed Shrike, Newbiggin, UK; December 2018)
Morpeth Garden list: 70 (Willow Tit, October 2019)
2019 year list: 235 (Snow Bunting, Bamburgh; October)
