Wednesday 5th April 2017

The Great Grey Shrike was still present on Stony Marl Moor but most of the views today were rather distant.

At Long Nab today 5 Common Scoter and a Sandwich Tern went north, an Eider and a Red-throated Diver went south and there was a ♂ Stonechat by the Obs. Moving south a nice pair of Eider were in Burniston Bay and at Scalby Mills we had a pair of Goosanders.

Johnson’s Marsh was quite productive today although things seem to appear as the day went on but in the end we had during the day 2♂ Garganey, 2 Shelduck, 4 Teal, 3 Wigeon, 2 Oystercatchers, 2 Redshanks, 2 Common Snipe and a Jack Snipe.

At Wykeham South Lake the wildfowl included 4 Pink-footed Geese, a Shelduck and 2 Goldeneye and on Knipe Point at the northern end of Cayton Bay there was a roost of 31 Purple Sandpipers with a couple of Redshanks.
