Thursday 30th March 2017

Waxwings are on their way back home and today 25+ just made it into our area as they were seen on Eastgate in Pickering from 16.25 onwards.

At Long Nab today a ♂ Eider went south, a Common Scoter and 2 Red-throated Divers went north and there were 15 Bramblings, 4 Siskins and 2 White Wagtails in the area. Moving south along the coast we had a Wheatear at Cromer Point, a Bar-tailed Godwit and 3 Sand Martins in Jackson’s Bay and slightly inland at Johnson’s Marsh the 2♂ Garganey remained for another day.

In and around the Harbour the Great Northern Diver was still a feature and 39 Purple Sandpipers were still using the roost.

Elsewhere there was a Green Sandpiper in New Dyke at Seamer Tip and at Wykeham South Lake we had 3 Goldeneye, 2 Shoveler, 6 Great Crested Grebes, 2 Little Grebes, 4 Fieldfares and a Corn Bunting.
