Tuesday 29th March

Not for the first time in recent years, a grey female type Black Redstart was found in the Melrose Street area and also frequented the Council Yard. A Red-necked Grebe was reported off Hundale Point. At lease two Common Scoters were at Wykeham Lakes and two flew out to sea ENE in the fog at Long Nab. Pairs of Northern Shovelers were at Scalby Mills and Seamer Road Mere. Four Goldeneye were hanging on at Wykeham South Lake (Water Park). A Jack Snipe was at Cornelain and a single first summer Mediterranean Gull and a single Dunlin were off Holbeck and in South Bay respectively. 32 Purple Sandpipers roosted at the Harbour and a Great Northern Diver was seen in South Bay,Two Shelducks were on flood water north of Metes Lane, Seamer and a Common Buzzard asserted its authority over an intruding Peregrine. Four Corn Buntings were seen at Star Carr with three Yellowhammers, 20 Linnets and a few Goldfinches.
