A Turtle Dove was on overhead wires between Burniston and Cloughton and a Red Kite flying over Fields Farm at Long Nab drifted west towards Harwood Dale. Highlights past Long Nab Obs this morning were 816 Common Scoter and three Mediterranean Gulls north and 115 Manx Shearwaters and 36 Whimbrel south. A juvenile Yellow-legged Gull was off Marine Drive this morning and a Greenshank was on Johnson's Marsh. A Little Grebe, one Shoveler, 11 Mandarin Duck, 58 Lapwing and a Common Snipe were at Harwood Dale Lake. A Hobby was seen over Wrench Green and two, possibly three Hobbys, including one juvenile, were seen at Wykeham East Lake along with three Little ringed Plovers, two Oystercatchers, one Dunlin and three juvenile Lesser Black backed Gulls. A Hobby was over Burniston late afternoon.
