Wednesday 21st May 2014

An Osprey lingering at Wykeham South Lake for 20 minutes before leaving north at 11.40hrs was the highlight of the day, also present there were the Egyptian Geese and a Hobby.
On Potter Brompton Carr (no general access) there were 4 Shelduck, the adult Whooper Swan, 2 Cream Crown Marsh Harrier, 3 Greenshank, 2 Redshank, a Spotted Flycatcher and 2 Garden Warbler, a Common Sandpiper was on Johnson's Marsh and the pair of Shelduck were still on Scalby Lodge Pond but only 4 young remained.
Passage along the coast was very slow indeed, heading south (unless stated) at Long Nab were 3 Lapwing, 3 Swift + 1 north, 1 Flava, 26 Swallow, 1 House Martin, 1 Sand Martin and 12 Carrion Crow.

A good record for Long Nab was a Slow Worm along the Cleveland Way just north of the Hut.
