Tuesday 24th - Wednesday 25th November 2015

A slower day on 24th produced a Little Auk off Marine Drive, at least one Black-necked Grebe in the Harbour and a Snow Bunting was at Stoupe Brow.

The 25th was a little more lively, highlight being a Water Pipit at Scalby Mills, the third this year!
Also at Scalby Mills were 11 Lapwing, 6 Ringed Plover, 1 adult Mediterranean Gull, 1 Kingfisher, 4 Rock Pipit and 1 Grey Wagtail.
Offshore passage was non existent however a juvenile Little Gull headed north slowly feeding off Scalby Mills, strangely a scarce species within the area this year.
Also seen were 4 Black-necked Grebe and 50 Turnstone around the Harbour, a Little Auk off Marine Drive, 2 Red-crested Pochard, 8 Goldeneye, 4 Great Crested Grebe and 150 Lapwing at Wykeham South Lake, 100 Lapwing and a Goosander at Harwood Dale Lake, 8 Ringed Plover were in Cayton Bay and a Brambling was in a Crossgates garden, another species that has been scarce this autumn.
