Thursday 19th May 2016

A generally quiet day, at least it was until a Spoonbill found on Johnson’s Marsh at 18.43hrs sparked a little twitch. Unfortunately it didn’t stay long, it headed of southwest at 19.02hrs. A nice addition to the year list and the 200th species recorded in Scarborough this year.
Elsewhere a Turtle Dove, a Cuckoo, a Redstart and 4 singing Garden Warbler were noted at Low North Camp, 2 Spotted Flycatcher, a Cuckoo and 4 singing Redstart were in Castle Beck Wood, the Mandarin with 6 ducklings were on Harwood Dale Lake, 2 Common Tern and 2 Egyptian Geese were on Wykeham South Lake, a Corn Bunting was singing on Willerby and 4 Swallow were noted heading south along the coast.
