Monday 6th May

The Woodchat Shrike remained in the Long Nab area through the day, moving from the hedge just north of the observation hut to gorse bushes 100m north-east of Cliff Top House. Other birds passing by Long Nab included 3 Red-breasted Mergansers, 2 Whimbrel, a Sanderling and 6 Dunlin. An adult Mediterranean Gull was seen at Burton Riggs, and a Pink-footed Goose was with Greylags near Seamer Tip Bridge. A Redwing was still around in Burniston, and 2 Turtle Doves were purring at Sneverdale Rigg, Dalby. A female Wheatear was spotted on the inner side of the Marine Drive wall, and a Red-throated Diver and 2 Sandwich Terns were feeding off the castle headland. At Wykeham South Lake there were still up to 50 Sand Martins and 20 House Martins.
