45 Crossbills flew south at Ravenscar early this morning. 8 Whimbrel, 3 Common Terns, 2 Dunlin and 17 Teal were on/around the rocks at Scalby Mills and 11 Goosanders flew past south. A juvenile Marsh Harrier flew over fields at Scalby Lodge pond, then was seen twice flying over Long Nab, first north then south. A Green Sandpiper was heard calling as it flew south over Scalby Nab. At South Cliff 71 Crossbills flew south, and 6 Mediterranean Gulls, 4 Little Egrets (one a juvenile), and a summer plumage Knot were on Black Rocks. An adult Mediterranean Gull was on rocks on the south side of North Bay, and an Osprey was spotted over Wykeham Lakes. This evening an Arctic Skua, a Whimbrel and a summer plumage Bar-tailed Godwit flew south past Scalby Mills where a summer plumage Knot was seen circling overhead. The Hen Harrier was still at Long Nab.
