Friday 29th April
The Pale-bellied Brent Goose remained at Scalby Mills and the Whooper Swan continued its stay at Seamer Road Mere.An Acredula type (Northern) Willow Warbler was at Cliff Top House, Burniston and was seen leaving to the north. A Hooded Crow flew high south past Long Nab in company with seven Carrion Crows and 84 Barn Swallows passed Long Nab with a Northern Wheatear and 17 Golden Plover on the potato field behind Long Nab Observatory. A female Northern Pintail circled Seamer Tip before flying off south east. A Raven flew north west calling over Harwood Dale Lake, where a Northern Wheatear, 14 Teal and three pairs of Lapwings were present. Most common warbler species are now well established within the recording area and territorially singing with many reports today from various locations. The first Reed Warbler sighting is eagerly awaited. Two pairs of Gadwall were at Seamer Tip Pool. Two pairs of Lapwings were at Hutton Buscel and three Garden Warblers and a Common Buzzard were the highlights of observations in the Woodlands Ravine and Cemetery areas.
