Sunday 17th May

6 Woodcock passes were observed on a survey in Wykeham Forest last night, and a Nightjar was seen flying but was not churring. There was a Wheatear at South Cliff Golf Course, and a Cuckoo flew north there. The Pink-footed Goose remains at Seamer Road Mere, plus a Whooper Swan.   
4 Whimbrel flew east, calling, over Seamer Tip pool, while 7 Curlews were on Seamer Mead and a Yellow Wagtail was at Long Lane. Migrant Willow Warblers were singing along Filey and Trinity Roads, and both a Whitethroat and a Lesser Whitethroat were at Johnson's Marsh. Highlights from Long Nab included a Great Northern Diver going north, plus a drake Eider, 61 Sandwich Terns and 116 Swallows going south. The Grasshopper Warbler and Wheatear are still present.
