In Thornton-le-Dale 2 Hawfinches were seen in the churchyard and another 2 were back in the private garden after an absence of two weeks.
Local raptors were performing well this morning with 4 Buzzards together over Burniston and the Castle headland Peregrines were putting on a fine display.
This afternoon there were 5 adult Mediterranean Gulls on the rocks in the South Bay.
