Alnmouth Harbour - 23rd October 2011
After a lovely afternoon visiting Alnwick and Alnwick Gardens with the family, we dropped into Alnmouth for a quick look at the harbour and estuary area. As the time was getting on (4.00pm) there were several gull species roosting with 100+ Common Gull, 200+ Herring Gull and dozens of Black-headed Gulls loafing about on the sands.
In addition 1 Bar-tailed Godwit, 30 Lapwing, Oystercatcher,Redshank and a very close Curlew were feeding. A large, female Sparrowhawk also flew low overhead.
