Friday 4th August 2017

The Garganey discovered yesterday evening at Seamer Tip pool was still present this morning along with the 3 Gadwall plus a Wigeon and 2 Little Grebes.

The stars of the day again were the raptors seen over Wykeham Forest from the view point which included 3 Honey Buzzards, at least 3 Goshawks, a Marsh Harrier, a Hobby, a Peregrine and Kestrel, Sparrowhawk and Buzzard. Eight species of raptor recorded in a day has to be a good day anywhere in the country at a single location.

Some late morning sea watching from Marine Drive was very unproductive with just 3 Common Scoters going north and a feeding flock of about 80 Sandwich Terns being the best.
