On Sunday 27th September 2015….
at the Aln Estuary – Alnmouth
There were lots of Redshanks, Curlews and Oystercatchers, this evening, noisily announcing their presence. Again, the highlight was a Kingfisher close to the mouth of the estuary. This was a surprise but they are always amazing to watch.
There has been regular sightings of Kingfisher in the county over the past few weeks, with birds recorded at St Mary’s Wetland and along local rivers etc.
At Alnmouth there was no sign of any Greenshanks or autumn/winter visitors but the walk was relaxing as always. Other birds present included a couple of Grey Heron, Cormorant, Eider and some Rock Pipits.
