Friday 19th June

11 Black-headed Gulls, a Barn Owl and 3 Lapwing chicks were seen in a field to the south-west of Seamer Tip this morning. Highlights from South Cliff included 51 Swifts, a Jay, a Nuthatch, 23 Siskins, a Lesser Redpoll and 44 Crossbills flying south, plus 5 Curlew and 446 Starlings flying north. This afternoon 4 Teal were at Johnson's Marsh, and 5 drake Teal were at Seamer Tip pool. A Hobby flew over Crossgates towards the coast, and 4 Spoonbills were seen from Long Nab flying south, and then were seen again from town, but did not pass Knipe Point or Cayton Bay. A second brood of Tree Sparrows were chirping in a nest box in Scalby.
