Sunday 7th May 2017

At Wykeham South Lake today a female Marsh Harrier flew north at 10.40, the Dark-bellied Brent Goose from Burton Riggs has now moved here, a pair of Shoveler, a Shelduck, a Little Ringed Plover, 16 Whimbrel, a Green Woodpecker and about 30 Swifts, Nearby on the River Derwent by Straits Lane there were 3 Reed Warblers and 2 Sedge Warblers.

10 Shore Larks remained in the first field north of the Obs at Long Nab where there were also 3 Wheatears, 5 Whimbrel on Star Carr today and a Turtle Dove was seen in Langdale Forest.

An interesting report concerns a heard only Wood Warbler at North Moor this evening near to the houses, surely worth checking out by anyone in the vicinity.
