Tuesday 9th May 2017

A female Pied Flycatcher on Castle Hill was a nice new discovery this morning, also at this location a Garden Warbler and a Fieldfare.

Seamer Tip pool was still hanging on to 2 Pink-footed Geese and there were also a pair of Gadwall and at least 7 species of warbler present – Sedge, Reed, Grasshopper, Whitethroat, Lesser Whitethroat, Chiffchaff and Willow Warbler.

The 2 Wheatears were still in evidence inside the wall on Marine Drive, in the harbour area still at least 11 Turnstones and at Burton Riggs a Little Egret and 2 Common Sandpipers.

West of Thornton Le Dale at Wray House Farm there were a couple of Yellow Wagtails.

The 10 Shore Larks were still in the field north of the Obs at Long Nab and during the afternoon 670+ Swallows were counted moving south between 14.00 and 19.25.

Harwood Dale Lake played host to a Whinchat, a Yellow Wagtail and a Coot.
