Not a very nice day with a mixture of strong wind and wintery showers making observations difficult.
26 Whimbrels were in a field on the side of Seamer Tip by Star Carr, a Willow Tit was to the east of the Tip, 3 Corn Buntings flew north over Seamer Tip pool and in the area of the Motocross track there was a Wheatear and a Lesser Whitethroat
Harwood Dale Lake today had 20 Swallows, 6 Sand Martins, 2 House Martins, 3 Wheatears and a Whitethroat;
Finally an evening stroll around Long Nab produced 13 Shore Larks (which are now the latest ever and the longest stayers), 2 White Wagtails and a Wheatear. There were two Manx Shearwaters going north from here this morning.
The following photo explains why some people think birders are slightly insane in the things they do for their hobby.
