Tuesday 17th January 2017

The discovery of another Iceland Gull at Scalby Mills today by Tony Ford was a nice find and there was possibly a distant Glaucous Gull there early on. Later in the day there was a count of 311 Wigeon here.

The flock of 16 Shore Larks were seen again but this afternoon they were on the south side of Rocks Lane in the second field west of Cliff Top House.

The Harbour had the usual 2 Great Northern Divers and the Black-necked Grebe and round the corner on Albert Drive the 2 Black Redstarts were seen again.

2 Woodcocks and a Merlin were seen at Seamer Carr.

Potter Brompton Carr held 15 Siskins, 80+ Linnets, 31 Fieldfares and 12 Meadow Pipits plus a group of 20+ Pink-footed Geese flew over to the east. At East Heslerton Carr there were 40 Fieldfares, 25 Tedwings and 30 Tree Sparrows.

20 Siskins flew over Peasholm.
