The Cetti's Warbler was still at Potter Brompton Carr this morning, where there was also a Kingfisher and a Spotted Flycatcher. Another Spotted Flycatcher plus 3 Garden Warblers and 2 Blackcaps were seen at Sutherbuff Rigg in Dalby Forest. Highlights from Long Nab this morning included 202 Manx Shearwaters and 233 Swifts, mostly going south, while a Little Egret flew past northwards. A pair of Shoveler were at Johnson's Marsh and a Fulmar was seen over Seamer Road Mere. A Honey Buzzard made a brief appearance at Wykeham Raptor Viewpoint, where there were also 2 Tree Pipits, 2 Crossbills, and Common Buzzards. The Quail was again singing south of Wykeham Grange Farm, and 2 more Quail were also heard singing on a survey of TA0078, where the other highlight was a flock of 74 Linnets.
