Friday 10th March 2017

The immature Glaucous Gull was seen at Ravenscar again but today only in flight for 10 minutes or so at about 13.00, it was rather distant and didn’t appear below the cliffs until the tide had covered the rocks known as Peak Steel. Also in this area at least 3 Ravens were seen patrolling the cliffs on at least five occasions and a Buzzard flew over the Golf Course. A couple of miles down the road at the Rudda Road Flash there were two pairs of Teal and a pair of Shelducks.

The 2♀ Goosanders were still present on Throxenby Mere, there was a Dunlin on Cromer Point pond and at Long Nab 5 Eider and 2 Common Scoter flew south. Along the coast between Long Nab and Scalby Beck signs of spring with 9 Goldcrests and 2 Chiffchaffs being seen.
