Fairly early on a Merlin flew north past Scalby Lodge Pond, 2 Common Scoter were on Wykeham South Lake, a female Blackcap was on Barmoor Close and the first migrant Ring Ouzel of the year appeared on the north side of Castle Hill (by the plateau).

On and around The Mere this morning a Great Crested Grebe, 2 Coot, 32 Tufted Duck, 2 Chiffchaffs and 2♂ Blackcaps; a Great White Egret flew east over Taylor Way at 09.15; an adult Mediterranean Gull was on Seamer Mead and on South Cliff there were two singing Chiffchaffs and a solitary Goldcrest.

Finally this evening at Long Nab a Wheatear was in the field to the north of the Obs and a Chiffchaff was at Crook Ness.
