The Black-throated Diver was in North Bay today plus a Great Northern Diver off Marine Drive. A Puffin was photographed in Scarborough waters today (location unknown). 5 Grey Plovers were in Cornelian Bay. The Whimbrel was seen again in fields at Long Nab where a single Snow Bunting flew south and 35 Pink-footed Geese flew north. The Great Egret was still at Seamer tip pool plus 2 Shoveler there. At Nabgate, Sandale and Ellerburn totals included 6 Brambling, 17 Yellowhammers, 31 Chaffinches, a Willow Tit, 2 Marsh Tits, 21 Siskin, a Redpoll and 2 Common Buzzards. The Kingfisher performed well at the Open Air Theatre.
