Tuesday 4th July 2017

An early visit to the Marine Drive shelter from 04.30 to 06.30 produced 3 Red-throated Divers (north), 6 Manx Shearwaters (5 south, 1 north), 4 Common Scoter (1 south, 3 north), 2 Dunlin (south), Bar-tailed Godwit (north), 2 Black-headed Gull (north), 2 Arctic Terns (south), 9 Puffins (8 south, 1 north) and 4000 Guillemots/Razorbills (south) also just round the corner in South Bay there were 7 Common Scoter.

A Ruff almost landed in the Scarborough area but decided against it and flew off southwest at Potter Brompton Carr; the Little Egret remained at Wykeham South Lake; the Little Grebe was still present on Johnson’s Marsh; there were 5 Mandarins, 3 Teal and the Greenshank at Harwood Dale Lake.

This evening a full breeding plumage adult Mediterranean Gull was at Scalby Mills where there were also a couple of Turnstones and off Marine Drive 35 Knot went south as did 26 Manx Shearwaters with 7 going north.
