Wednesday 3rd January 2018

At least some of the Hawfinches were seen again around the Dog Kennel Lane and Rectory Lane junction as well as near the Church but they were very mobile and elusive, 4 or 5 individuals were seen today.

Around the rocks below and at the Holbeck Car Park there were at least 11 Mediterranean Gulls with 7 adults, 2x 2nd winter and 2x 1st winter; in South Bay there was a Red-throated Diver and a Common Scoter; a Dunlin was in Jackson’s Bay; 2 Purple Sandpipers, 41 Redshank and an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull at Scalby Mills and 6 Goosanders on The Mere.

There was a large flock of Lapwings across three fields at Folkton Carr with 12 Golden Plover and 4 Ringed Plovers; in Dalby Forest there were still 50+ Crossbills near Haygate and at Thornton Carr the Green Sandpiper was still in the Charity Farm area.
