Bridlington was just like that today, but for one element. Birdguides had put out a report of Purple Sandpipers near the harbour, and it was that that had attracted me. I wandered around the harbour but other than a small group of Turnstones, which seemed to be imitating pigeons picking up crumbs from the pavements, there was no sign of the Sandpipers. I walked to the end of the pier hoping to see them roosting opposite where the seafish are landed, but still none.

It seems, after all, that Bridlington has plenty of offer, even out of season!!
