Firstly we have some late news from yesterday; there were 11 Shore Larks and a Snow Bunting seen at Crook Ness. Also the Shag seen yesterday with the green darvik ring was ringed as a chick earlier this year on the Isle of May.
Today was fairly quiet with very little being seen. The bird of the day was a Short-eared Owl at Ganton Dale Farm, Staxton, this afternoon reported by Frank Shearer. Also a large flock of 150+ Redwings and Fieldfares were seen in hedges about 1 mile north of the A64 on the B1258 near Knapton Lodge. Late news in concerns the continued presence of 11 Shore Larks at Crook Ness.
