Sunday 14th June

A Green Sandpiper, 2 Shelduck and 2 Wigeon were present at Johnson's Marsh this morning. At Wykeham Lakes a drake Wigeon was at East Lake, 2 Egyptian Geese were at South Lake, and from Long Causeway Road 2 Willow Tits, 2 Garden Warblers and a Blackcap were found. 12 Sedge Warblers were seen, and a Reed Warbler was singing, at New Dike, Seamer Tip. 36 Common Scoter, 3 Red-throated Divers and 10 Oystercatchers flew past Long Nab, where 2 Siskins were present at the ringing station. There was a possible sighting of a Ring-necked Duck at Seamer Tip pool; 2 Lesser Whitethroats and a Willow Warbler were at Burton Riggs; and at Seamer Road Mere there were a Coot, the first returning Black-headed Gull, and 2 juvenile Tufted Duck are still surviving there. Today's annual count on Castle Headland showed 1772 'apparently occupied' Kittiwake nests and 12 'apparently occupied' Fulmar nest sites - almost identical counts to last year's. 4 Turtle Doves were present in Burniston this evening.
