The Eastern Black Redstart was still present at the southern end of Cayton Bay but spent much of its time high up on the cliff face and only occasionally came down to the beach. When it did come down it wasn’t there long before getting chased off by a Robin. Also today a few Waxwings were noted at various locations, 3 flew north over Cayton Bay at 07.50, 5 were in Falcon Avenue at Crossgates but had increased to 7 and relocated to Greenfinch Close by 09.20 and finally 10 were seen on Wareham Road on the Eastfield Industrial Estate. Seawatching from Long Nab produced quite a variety of species including Black-throated Diver, Great Northern Diver, 2 Pintail, Pochard, 60 Eiders, Velvet Scoter, Red-breasted Merganser, Goosander, 5 Little Gulls and a Little Auk. Also in the area were a Jack Snipe and 12 Snow Buntings in the stubble field north of the hut. At Wykeham South Lake a Long-tailed Duck was a surprise and there was also 5 Pochard, Goldeneye, Redshank and 2 Dunlin. Finally the Black-necked Grebe remained in Scarborough Harbour and 10 Mediterranean Gulls were seen with 9 at their favoured spot at Holbeck and one at Scalby Mills.
