Thursday 5th - Saturday 7th June 2014

The 5th was a very quiet day with the 6th only just coming out on top, the pick of the days reports were the satellite tagged Osprey west at the Wykeham Raptor Viewpoint while also seen in that area were several Turtle Dove at least 1 Honey Buzzard and a Goosander west, a new Quail was heard on Burn Howe Moor.
The 7th was another slow day but was brightened up somewhat by 2 Spoonbill that flew south over Irton at 16.15, elsewhere a single Honey Buzzard was seen again in the Forest, the Pink-footed Goose, 9 Egyptian Geese, 3 Shelduck and a Teal were on Wykeham South Lake and the Grasshopper Warbler from earlier in the Spring was still along Rocks Lane.
A watch at Long Nab on the latter date produce the following (south unless stated) 3 Fulmar + 9 north, 3 Manx Shearwater, 1 Cormorant north, 1 Hobby north, 1 Lapwing + 7 north, 3 Black-headed Gull north, 2 Lesser Black-backed Gull, 1 Great Black-backed Gull, 11 Swift, 5 Sand Martin, 9 Swallow, 1 Flava, 2 Jackdaw, 3 Carrion Crow north and 11 Linnet + 1 north.
