5 Pink-footed Geese, a pair of Teal and 23 Tufted Duck were at Seamer Road Mere this morning. A Whitethroat was on the edge of South Cliff Golf Course, another was at the motorcycle track by Seamer Tip and in the afternoon another was singing at The Dell, Eastfield. A Tree Pipit, A Yellow Wagtail, 2 Siskins and 2 Swallows flew over Long Nab, and a Heron and a Buzzard flew over Stepney. In the Givendale/Givendale Rigg area of Dalby Forest there were 5 Tree Pipits, 1/2 Goshawks, 6 Blackcaps, 6 Buzzards and good numbers of Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs. This afternoon the female Ring Ouzel was still on the footpath between the crematorium and Stepney, and 2 Lesser Black-backed Gulls remained at the Open Air Theatre. A Brent Goose flew south over Jackson's Bay, Scalby Mills and past Castle Headland, while at Scalby Mills there were 3 Lesser Black-backed Gulls, a drake Eider, 3 Turnstones, 4 Redshank and 9 Oystercatchers. A Buzzard, a pair of Chiffchaffs and a Black-headed Gull were at Johnson's Marsh. Last night a Common Sandpiper and a flock of Common Scoter were recorded flying over Peasholm. 2 Common Cranes were spotted circling over Oliver's Mount in the late afternoon, and after drifting north a bit headed off south where they were seen high over Cayton before disappearing. Four Ring Ouzels and 10 Wheatears were at Star Carr, also 3 Little Egrets in that area.
