A Minke whale was spotted about 2 miles offshore from Cloughton Wyke, heading north, and one was also seen nearly 2 hours later from Long Nab. 2 Arctic Skuas were seen off Marine Drive, and again from Long Nab, heading north. At Johnson's Marsh there was a flock of 100+ Swifts in the early afternoon. A Barn Owl was seen at Sawdon this evening.
