A Common Sandpiper was at Wykeham Lakes this morning, as well as 3 singing Garden Warblers, a Wheatear and a Reed Warbler. Another Common Sandpiper was at Taylor Way pool, while 3 Gadwall were on Seamer Tip pool and 8 were flying around over it, together with 30 Swifts and 30 hirundines. A Turtle Dove was singing in Troutsdale, where there was another Common Sandpiper, a female Mandarin with 4 young, 2 singing Spotted Flycatchers and a pair of Kingfishers, plus a Redstart at Troutsdale Lodge. 3 Wheatears and a Grasshopper Warbler were at Long Nab, where a cream-crowned Marsh Harrier flew north-west and a Little Ringed Plover, 173 Swallows and 30 House Martins flew south. A Sparrowhawk also flew out high, heading east. 2 male Lesser Redpolls were in song flight on the north-west side of Harwood Dale Forest.
