The Woodchat Shrike remained in the Long Nab area through the day, where there was also a  Wheatear in the field 100m north of the observation hut, a Sedge Warbler at Crook Ness, and 4 Whimbrels flew past. In the Bridestones area of Dalby Forest there were 2 Redstarts, 6 Tree Pipits, a Turtle Dove, 2 Nuthatches, 2 Whitethroats and a Treecreeper. Another Turtle Dove was seen in grid square SE8875 near East Knapton, together with 2 Oystercatchers and good numbers of Tree Sparrows. A further 2 Turtle Doves have also arrived back at the Mill Inn in Harwood Dale. In the Troutsdale Moor area there were 3 Tree Pipits, 3 Crossbills, 2 Garden Warblers, a Jay and a Redstart. At Bent Rigg Farm there were 4 Wheatears; at Wykeham South Lake there were 3 Goldeneye; and a male Pied Flycatcher was photographed in a Hutton Buscel garden.
