Tuesday 16th July

An Osprey dropped in to sit on a telegraph pole inland of Long Nab for 10 minutes early this morning, before leaving southwards over the sea. Also spotted briefly over the Long Nab ringing plantation was a Crossbill with an obvious wing bar - probably a Two-barred Crossbill. Also at the ringing plantation was a Willow Tit, and a Cuckoo flew south-west past Long Nab. A Turtle Dove was seen at Keasbeck Hill Farm, Harwood Dale, and 13 Mandarins were present on Harwood Dale Lake. 15 Common Crossbills, 2 family groups of Tree Pipits and a Lesser Redpoll were seen in Harwood Dale Forest. A family of 5 Yellow Wagtails were at the side of a bean field south-west of Seamer Tip. Also in the same field were a juvenile Reed Warbler, Sedge Warblers, a Whitethroat, Reed Buntings, and a Lesser Whitethroat, plus a Marbled White in the adjacent field. 3 juvenile Grey Wagtails were at Burton Riggs. A female Red-footed Falcon was spotted sitting on wires on Garth End Road in West Ayton late in the evening,before flying off towards Seamer.
