Saturday 31st May - Sunday 1st June 2014

A fairly quiet day on the 31st produced the usual suspects and a satellite tagged Osprey at Wykeham Raptor Viewpoint.
The 1st however was another good day, the clear highlight of the day was an adult WHITE-TAILED EAGLE that flew north at the Wykeham Raptor Viewpoint at 10.05hrs. The bird seen at the same location on 21st - 22nd March was also an adult and begs the question, was it the same bird?
Another highlight was a singing Wood Warbler in the hedge between Harpers Chip Shop and the Shell Garage on the A64 just east of Staxton.
Elsewhere a Quail was singing at Long Nab where the 'Northern' Golden Plover remained, 2 Honey Buzzard were seen from the Wykeham Raptor Viewpoint, Redstarts were seen in Wykeham Forest and at Scar Wood and migrant Sedge and Garden Warblers were seen at Ravenscar.
