a diary living with nature in East Holywell and beyond

Bay Watch 22/11
Autumn is rapidly turning to winter with the temperatures forecast to plummet later this week. A walk round the patch today saw 32 bird species. Of note were two thousand plus lapwings passing over St Mary's.
In Holywell Dene large flocks of Blue, Great, Long-tailed and Coal Tits were interspersed with Goldcrests.
Heading home along Whitley Bay promenade was bracing to say the least. A strong easterly wind brought hefty horizontal showers and waves breaking at high tide soaked me and Dill.
