Wednesday 8th May

Yet more excitement today, this time at Wykeham South Lake where first of all a drake Ring-necked Duck was spotted this morning in among a bunch of Tufted Ducks, and then in the afternoon 3 Black Terns turned up (sorry!). Also at the lake in the morning were 2 Common Terns, plus 3 Arctic Terns flying east and in the afternoon 5 Teal, a drake Pintail, 51 Tufted Duck, a Dunlin, 3 Common Sandpipers and 4+ Common Terns, plus 3 Greenshank which flew south-east. At Seamer Road Mere there were 160 Sand Martins, 40 Swallows and a House Martin. Highlights from Long Nab included a Wheatear on the clifftop, and 2 Gadwall, a Whimbrel, a Common Tern and 2 Arctic Terns passing by.
