When we arrived in Seahouses, the first birds we saw were the Common Eider (or Cuddy Ducks). Their calls always remind me of Frankie Howard with a soft "ah-oo-oh"! The second bird was another year tick - Red Throated Diver, and guess who didn't have a camera with him? !!! A walk around Beadnell Bay in the hope of seeing (departed) Lesser Yellow Legs turned up another year tick in the form of Little Tern. Not surprising really with a protected colony on Long Nanny.
