Chiffchaffs are moving in now with birds recorded today at Crook Ness, Trough Gully, Style Scrub, 2 along Scalby Beck and another by the Sealife Centre, at The Mere and at Harwood Dale Lake.

Elsewhere today there were 39 Purple Sandpipers roosting on the East Pier at the Harbour and on Castle Hill a Goldcrest, a Fieldfare and a Redwing.
