Saturday 26th March

Much of the activity today concerned the mating Peregrines on Castle headland and an increase to approximately 200 Kittiwakes rafting off Marine Drive with some returning to nest sites on the cliffs and within the town. A Whooper Swan was reported near Scalby Lodge Pond and a Raven was seen at Ravenscar. A Jay was noted at Helwarth Road, Harwood Dale. At Wykeham Lakes this afternoon, there were three Egyptian Geese, four Gadwall, eight Northern Shoveler, seven Eurasian Teal, one Goosander, one Shelduck, 37 Coot, one Snipe, 16 Chiffchaff and a Fieldfare.
