Welcome to the all new Blog format for Scarborough Birders. As you will see at the moment we are up and running but the site is still very basic, we will be transferring the content of the last site to this one in due course but wanted to get going so the daily sightings are updated regularly now we are into the exciting part of the year! Thank you for your patience and good birding.
