On the 16th October 2015….
Was great to finally catch up with a Shorelark which has been entertaining birders over the past week at Blyth, South Beach. We tried a quick drive over after work on Wednesday, however despite our best efforts, we only got there about 15 minutes before the light went and missed out. We enjoyed some fish and chips however at the nearby ‘Coastline’ restaurant.
I had better luck on the Friday. After leaving the car in the small car park close to South Beach, it’s only a short walk to the pier, where the bird was showing extremely well. A very welcome year tick and a great start to the weekend. It is a beautiful bird.
