Day 11: Alnmouth to Amble

Went down to Alnmouth – had lunch looking over the beach. Greenfinches, chaffinches, house martins, sparrows, curlews, terns, lapwing.

Proceeded on to Warkworth Castle, in (you’ll never guess) Warkworth. Good value, as we got a two for one ticket from English Heritage from the first cottage. The keep was very intact and good to explore – great sense of atmosphere, with ground and first floor. Pied wagtails, carrion crows.

Drove beside River Coquet to Amble where we walked around the harbourside. Lots of gulls and crows. Sandwich terns shrieking and fishing.


Note: there is a house martins nest in the doorway of cottage. Young must have fledged but keep returning and flying back and forth.
