Tuesday 22nd October

A Siberian Chiffchaff was calling frequently in Pipe Gully (150m south of Crook Ness) this morning, and a Mealy Redpoll was at Cliff Top House before flying off northwards. Other highlights from the morning at Long Nab include 1202 Pink-footed Geese, 3 Whooper Swans, a Twite and 261 Siskins all heading south, and a Great Northern Diver on the sea. A Red-throated Diver was close to the shore in North Bay, opposite the skate park. 2 Guillemots were just off the castle headland, where a skein of 200+ Pink-footed Geese was seen flying overhead. A Little Egret and 2 Marsh Tits were on the east side of Seamer Tip; a Peregrine was sat on the ground and 2 Willow Tits were present at Seamer Mead; and 15 Fieldfares were seen at Seamer Carr. 6 Goosanders were on Harwood Dale Lake this afternoon.
