Yet more excitement at Long Nab - 8 Dotterel in the field just north of the observation hut, which stayed for a couple of hours. The Woodchat Shrike remained around gorse bushes north-east of Cliff Top House, and there were 2 Wheatears north of the observation hut. Also seen flying north past Long Nab were a Golden Plover, a Ringed Plover, 10 Turnstone, 5 Curlew and 13 Whimbrel, plus a Great Crested Grebe floating north. A Marsh Harrier was spotted on the railway side of Gristhorpe, and a Brambling was still at Hutton Buscel. At Potter Brompton Carr there were 3 Curlew and 2 Oystercatchers. At Wykeham South Lake there were 3 Common Terns, 2 Common Sandpipers, 2 Shelduck, 8 Arctic Terns and 6+ Swifts, while a Dunlin and a Whimbrel were seen flying past eastwards.
