Monday 28 November 2016

Waxwings were reported again, this time 6 were at 69 Green Lane at 11.00 this morning, but it was negative news on the Victoria Road/Albemarle Crescent flock.

The harbour area was still holding on to the Great Northern and Red-throated Divers, Black-necked Grebe, a Guillemot and on the East Pier there were 46 Purple Sandpipers.

At Long Nab there were at least 12 Shore Larks in the third field to the west of the Crook Ness car park, there were 5 Mediterranean Gulls at Holbeck and at Seamer Tip a Chiffchaff and 15 Redshanks.

Slightly further afield at Langdale Forest the 2 Great Grey Shrikes remained at May Moss and Maw Rigg, and at Stoney Knoll a flock of 110+ Lesser Redpolls, 21 Crossbills and a Jack Snipe.
