Sunday 13th October

A group of 25 Whooper Swans were in North Bay this morning, before flying off southwards. A Chiffchaff was in Eastfield, and a Yellow-browed Warbler was in a large tit flock at Seamer Road Mere, where there were also 9 Tufted Duck, a Goldeneye, a Coot and 2 Little Grebes. About 15 Bottlenose Dolphins were seen close in heading north, initially off Scarborough Harbour, then in North Bay, Jackson's Bay and then passing Long Nab. Highlights seen heading south past Long Nab included 30 Pink-footed Geese (plus 11 more at Field Farm), 2 Tufted Duck, 3 Little Gulls, 2 Common Terns and 2 Swallows. 2 Guillemots were seen off Marine Drive, and a Blackcap was still present in Wrench Green.
