This species is a common breeder and even more numerous wintering bird in Northumberland. The bird below was nesting on the shoreline near Seahouses - these birds often have to lay multiple times as eggs are washed away by high tides or predated. Disturbance by tourists and dog walkers is also a common problem for these birds.
