Also near Cliff Top House were a Spotted Flycatcher and a Garden Warbler, while a female Redstart was at Middle Plantation and 4 Wheatears were in the field north of Long Nab. An Osprey was seen circling about a mile inland from Long Nab this morning, drifting north. A female Pied Flycatcher was spotted near the Youth Hostel on Burniston Road, and a Redwing was at Oliver's Mount. A Marsh Harrier flew east over Burton Riggs, there were 16 Whimbrel at Seamer Mead, and 15 Sedge Warblers were singing around the perimeter of Seamer Tip.
