Highlight of the day was an Osprey seen at Ellerburn Trout Farm, the same site that held one for a few days back in spring.
It was a very quiet morning at Long Nab, passing there (south unless stated) were 3 Red-throated Diver, 23 Fulmar + 13 north, 3 Manx Shearwater + 7 north, 1140 Gannet + 58 north, 1 Cormorant north, 18 Oystercatcher north, 8 Dunlin, 2 Turnstone + 1 north, 3 Knot, 14 Redshank, 1 Arctic Skua north, 1 Great Skua, 7 Black-headed Gull + 1 north, 2 Common Gull and 5 Kittiwake + 35 north.
Flotmanby was much quieter too, only a Dunlin, 11 Curlew and 5 Snipe were present and a Turtle Dove was seen in Cloughton.
