Wednesday 23rd March
A female Marsh Harrier came in off the sea from the north east at Long Nab, circled around and then flew back out to sea in a southerly direction. Two Shelducks also flew south there. The Whooper Swan remained at Saltpans Road, Cloughton. A redhead Goosander, a pair of Mandarin Duck, a pair of Dippers and two Lapwings were at Wrench Green. A Raven was seen over Jugger Howe Moor and 150 Kittiwakes were rafting off Marine Drive with 12 back on The Spa bridge. A Red Kite circled over Heron Lane Crossgates this afternoon. Highlights taken from reports from Wykeham Lakes included two Northern Pintail, 10 Goldeneye, five Oystercatchers, Tawny Owl and 12 Chiffchaffs amongst more common species.
