The male and female Honey Buzzards were performing again at Wykeham Raptor View Point today with multiple sightings during the morning. This year has been much better than 2016 for the number of sightings in the area and another period of three successive days with reported sightings. For Honey Buzzards in Yorkshire this is definitely the place to be. Also from the same location we have reports of a Hobby at 11.30 and of an Osprey flying east at 14.30.
Also today we had 3 Turtle Doves in Dalby Forest; a ♂ Pochard and 15 Mandarins on Harwood Dale Lake; a Whimbrel and 21 Curlew at Cornelian Bay; a Little Grebe on Johnson’s Marsh; a Bar-tailed Godwit, 26 Oystercatchers and 2 Redshank in Jackson’s Bay and at Scalby Nab 55 Black-headed Gulls including 2 juveniles and 2 Common Gulls.
