Sunday 4th February 2018

The by now customary culprits were still at Brompton-by-Sawdon but the Ring Ouzel was proving difficult for some and the Hawfinches of which there were 7+ were appearing rather infrequently.

In Langdale Forest today we had a Goshawk, 2 Stonechats at May Moss and 31 Common Crossbills but not even a sniff of a Great Grey Shrike yet this winter; Potter Brompton Carr had c1100 Lapwings, 140+ Wigeon, 2 Shoveler and a Shelduck and at Hackness Lake there were 7+ Mandarin Ducks.

Seamer Tip pool had a Shelduck and 6 Gadwall; Burton Riggs 2 Pink-footed Geese and 2 Oystercatchers; Scalby Mills 460 Wigeon and there was a Blackcap in Falsgrave Park.
