A Lesser Whitethroat was at Crook Ness early this morning, while a Red-breasted Merganser and a Whimbrel passed Long Nab and a Marsh Harrier flew out to sea there. A Tree Pipit was also seen going south past Crook Ness, and Lesser Whitethroats were present at Scalby Mills and at Seamer Tip. Ring Ouzels were again seen at Ravenscar throughout the day, with the count rising to 9 by early evening, plus 8 Wheatears, 15 Fieldfares and 6 Willow Warblers. Another Wheatear was spotted at Stoupe Brow, plus a Red Grouse and a pair of Stonechats. A Sedge Warbler, 2 Shovelers and 3 Oystercatchers were at Seamer Tip Pool, 9 Brambling were at Hutton Buscel, and a Blackcap was singing on Cockrah Road, West Ayton. In Cornelian Bay there were 6 Sandwich Terns, 3 Common Scoter and a Red-throated Diver.
