A quiet morning today with only a small amount of news received, most of which came from Wykeham South Lake where an early morning discovery of 2 Avocets was a nice surprise. The Black-throated Diver was still present and there was also a Pink-footed Goose, 2 Swallows, 2 Sand Martins and a Willow Warbler was heard distantly but there was no sign of the female Smew today. Also this morning a Bar-tailed Godwit was seen at 10.35 at the north end of Cayton Bay and 38 Redshanks were on the flooded field by the Cayton Bowling Club.
This afternoon there were sightings from the Haygate circuit in Dalby Forest where there were c60 Brambling, 40 Siskins, 5 Chiffchaffs, a Willow Warbler and 4 Crossbills and Harwood Dale Lake with 5 White, 21 Pied and a solitary Yellow Wagtail.
