Thursday 2nd May

The main highlight from Long Nab this morning was a Hooded Crow which initially flew north with 8 Carrion Crows, then half an hour later was seen again flying south (assuming it was not a second individual). Also seen going north past Long Nab were 2 Common Sandpipers and 795+ Razorbills. A Turtle Dove was purring in Dalby Forest this morning, where there were also several Tree Pipits, and another Turtle Dove was found in Wykeham Forest in the afternoon. In Troutsdale there were 4 Buzzards, 2 Dippers, a Kingfisher, 2 Grey Wagtails, 2 Garden Warblers, a Jay, and several  Blackcaps, Chiffchaffs and Willow Warblers. 14 Whimbrel were reported from Seamer Mead, and a second calendar year Hobby flew east over Crossgates. There were 2 Mandarin Ducks on Seamer Road Mere and a drake Goosander still on Harwood Dale Lake.
