A Little Egret, 4 Shelduck and a drake Teal were seen at Johnson's Marsh this morning, while at Wykeham South Lake there were 3 Shelduck, 3 Egyptian Geese, 30+ Sand Martins and 6 Whitethroats. The Cetti's Warbler was still singing at Potter Brompton Carr, where there were also 2 Garden Warblers, 10 Reed Warblers, 9 Sedge Warblers, 4 Gadwall, 9 Teal, 3 Snipe and 25 Curlew. The big excitement of the day was a White-tailed Eagle which was spotted flying south over Hovingham Drive and then over Cayton, after which it was not seen again. A Mediterranean Gull was also seen over Cayton, plus another bathing at Burton Riggs. 2 Turtle Doves were present in Staintondale, a Marsh Harrier flew west over Crossgates, and an Osprey was spotted fishing at Wykeham South Lake in the late afternoon. 2 Grasshopper Warblers were present, one of them reeling, at Middle Deepdale this evening.
