Thursday 25th May 2017

Unfortunately the nice weather is not proving too good for migrants at the moment but there are still a few things trickling through. The best birds today were an Osprey at Wykeham South Lake and an acredula (northern) type Willow Warbler was trapped and ringed at Long Nab.

Also at Wykeham South Lake this morning was a Little Egret, a Barn Owl and a Yellow Wagtail and near Long Nab there was a new Grasshopper Warbler at Scalby Lodge in Trough Gully, the second north of the pond.

A 3 hour period at Wykeham Raptor View Point this morning failed to produce any Honey Buzzards but there were Goshawk, Sparrowhawk and 5 Common Buzzards.

Finally today in Wykeham Forest 2 churring Nightjars and 2+ Woodcock were seen at the ‘shrike clearing’ and at the clearing on Moor Road at least 3 Nightjars were seen and 2+ Woodcock as well.
