The Great White Egret was on Potter Brompton Carr, where there was also a Pintail, this afternoon but flew towards Wykeham South Lake at 13.50 and was seen at the latter location at 14.30.
Also today there was an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull at Scalby Mills and 3 flew north off Long Nab where a Marsh Tit was also seen, a scarce species at this site.
