Tuesday 7th November 2017

Another frustrating morning at Long Nab where a probable Black-throated Thrush flew low over the stubble field calling but just continued west and could not be relocated, this was among an arrival of thrushes coming in off the sea and heading immediately inland. There were also an amount grounded in the area including 210 Blackbirds, 8 Fieldfares and 7 Redwings; 8 Snow Buntings flew south, a Short-eared Owl came in off the sea at 11.10 and in the stubble field near the Obs a Lapland Bunting and a Twite.

Another annoyingly brief sighting today was that of a Hawfinch flying west over Raincliffe Woods and calling at 13.00. Potter Brompton Carr produced 2 Whooper Swans; there was a Red-throated Diver in North Bay and a ♀ Goldeneye on The Mere.

The Red-necked Grebe remained for another day at Wykeham South Lake and there was also 7 Great Crested Grebes, 3 Gadwall, 4 Goldeneye, 23 Wigeon, 6 Teal, 83 Coot, a leucistic Greylag was with the ordinary Greylags and Canada Geese and 36 Mallard and 41 Pink-footed Geese flew south.
