Wednesday 15th May

Last night 3 Nightjars were heard churring, and there were at least 7 Woodcock, between the Great Moor Road and the Wykeham raptor viewpoint. A male Honey Buzzard was spotted flying south-west over Harwood Dale Moor this morning. A survey of square SE9797 in Harwood Dale Forest turned up 4 Tree Pipits, 12 Willow Warblers, 7 Blackcaps, 6 Whitethroats, 2 Linnets and a Garden Warbler. Highlights from Long Nab included 2 Whimbrel flying north and 144 Sandwich Terns flying south. 8 Herons were present at Johnson's Marsh, and a Turtle Dove was seen near the cricket pitch in Flixton. Opposite Fen Bog there were 3 male and 1 female Whinchat, a Corn Bunting, 3 Buzzards, and a pair of both Pied and Grey Wagtails. At least 4 Reed Warblers were heard singing at Seamer Tip Pool this evening, while only 3 Tufted Duck remained at Seamer Road Mere. Along the road between Malton Coates Farm and Givendale Head there were 4 Yellow Wagtails, 2 Turtle Doves and 3 Garden Warblers.
