Harthope Valley to Low Newton

The Harthope Valley was very snowy this morning, so instead we went to the coast. Starting off at Seahouses, there were 2 Long-tailed Ducks along with a number of Eiders including a bird which had 'sails'. Next we went to Low Newton and when we sat dowm on the beach a White Wagtail came within 2 metres of us. There was also lots of Rock Pipits, several of which looed like Scandinavian birds. Unfortunately along the beach there was about 10 Puffin carcasses and around 5 Gulliemot carcasses along with a dead Razorbill and Eider.
