Wednesday 3rd October

A male Ring Ouzel flew past Wykeham Raptor Viewpoint this morning where Goshawk, Sparrowhawk and three Common Buzzards were recorded. The first autumn Redwings were seen; two at Ravenscar and two flying in off the sea at Long Nab. The latter site held a grounded Barnacle Goose in the observatory field plus six flew past. Also past was at least one Pomarine Skua. Six Whooper Swans flew south along the coast and 13 Barnacle Geese flew inland at Jackson’s Bay. A flock of 20 Siskin were at Hilla Green. Three Song Thrushes were seen to drop in near Seamer tip, no doubt fresh in from the continent. An Eider remains at Scalby Mills.

Full Long Nab counts here:-
