Tuesday 9th July

A Sooty Tern flew north past Long Nab this morning, seen by two observers, a new species for the Scarborough district. By allerting observers to the north it was also seen in Cleveland, Durham and Northumberland. It had originally been seen flying south at Flamborough Head. Again good numbers of Common Scoters moving north and small numbers of waders on the move. Mediterranean Gulls had increased to six at Holbeck (four adults and two second year birds). The adult Mediterranean Gull remains at Cayton village. A juvenile Stonechat was on the cliff tops at Long Nab.
