Thursday 26th May 2016

The beginning of the easterly winds brought with it thick fog which made searching for migrants difficult.
Still, with poor visibility and minimal observer coverage a female Red-backed Shrike was found on the Castle Tops – other migrants on Castle Hill included a Spotted Flycatcher.
A second Red-backed Shrike, also a female, was found along Rocks Lane, Long Nab during the evening. Two Whimbrel also flew north at Long Nab.
Elsewhere 4 Greenshank were on Potter Brompton Carr (no general access).
