Wednesday 16th August 2017

Unfortunately the Rose-coloured Starling was not seen at all today.

A seawatch from Marine Drive this morning was not very inspiring but did produce 5 different species of wader moving south in small numbers including 23 Redshanks but the highlight was surely the 2 Arctic Skuas that went north.

Late afternoon on Scalby Mills rocks we had a Whimbrel, 5 Redshank, 6 Turnstones, a Lesser Black-backed Gull and 9 Sandwich Terns; a Honey Buzzard was reported from Wykeham Raptor View Point at 10.00 this morning and at Harwood Dale Lake this evening 11 Teal, 21 Mandarins and 114 Pied Wagtails.
