A ♀ Honey Buzzard was seen at Wykeham Raptor View Point this evening at 17.55 with a supporting cast of 5 Goshawks, 3 Crossbills and 2 Willow Tits.
At Scalby Mills this evening the juvenile Mediterranean Gull was seen again today and there was also a Great Skua. Much to the disgust of some tourists the Skua flew in from the north, proceeded to drown a Herring Gull and then start to devour it. Isn’t nature wonderful?
