The Tundra Bean Goose was still in the field to the east of Seamer Tip pool with 2 Pink-footed Geese until 09.40 and also in the area were a Common Snipe and a Jack Snipe. The Geese then spent the rest of the day between here and the nearby lake at Burton Riggs.
The 3 Ruff were still on Folkton Carr and between here and Flixton Carr we had two flocks of Lapwings (one of c1000 and one of c1500), two flocks of c1000 Fieldfares with a few Redwings, a Peregrine and a Kingfisher from Folkton bridge.
In Langdale Forest the raptors included a Common Buzzard, a ♂ Goshawk and 2 Sparrowhawks and there were a few small groups of Crossbills with a maximum of 7 in one group.
Sightings from other areas today included a ♀ Common Scoter in South Bay; a Little Owl at Hutton Buscel; a Great White Egret flew west over Yedingham at about 13.45; the Ring Ouzel, 3 Hawfinches and 6 Bullfinches at Brompton-by-Sawdon and at Hilla Green 2 pairs of Mandarin Ducks, 3 Dippers, a ♂ Grey Wagtail and 2 probable Hawfinches seen briefly in flight.
