At Johnson’s Marsh just 8 Redshanks and moving south along the cliffs to the south of Crook Ness were 2 flava Wagtails, 21 Meadow Pipits, 6 Swallows, a Fieldfare, 646 Linnets, 125 Goldfinches and a Siskin. At Crook Ness itself a single Lesser Whitethroat; 2 adult Mediterranean Gulls in South Bay; 2 Lesser Black-backed Gulls at the Open Air Theatre and on Cayton Carr 2 Grey Partridge, a Sparrowhawk and 7 Barn Swallows.
