Sunday 2nd June

Five Spoonbills flew north along the coast, initially seen over Filey and were watched to continue north into the Scarborough area. They were later seen in Northumberland. The Little Egret was still at Johnson's Marsh this morning, a Mediterranean Gull was in Cayton, and a Honey Buzzard was again displaying at Wykeham Raptor Viewpoint. A Quail was still calling south of Wykeham Grange Farm and another was calling near Boggle Hole.There were ten or more Yellowhammers on Limestone Road, Burniston, a Red Kite was seen over the A170 near Thornton Dale, and a Hobby flew in from the south-east at North Bay and flew on northwards. At Wykeham South Lake there were 2 Egyptian Geese, an Oystercatcher, and a Great Crested Grebe but little else, probably due to a lot of human activity. An adult Mediterranean Gull was seen over Taylor Way, and several bee orchids were reported to be by the first pond at Seamer Tip. A Turtle Dove was seen at Givendale Head and 6 were at the Mill Inn this evening. A Common Buzzard flew north over Peasholm mid-afternoon, and at least 140 Swifts were over the Valley Road area this evening. At Seamer Road Mere there were 10 Tufted Duck and a single Black-headed Gull.
