A record spring movement of Meadow Pipits was recorded at Long Nab with 1,254 moving north this morning along with two Sand Martins and 13 Golden Plover. A Sandwich Tern flew north past Holbeck and a Jack Snipe was flushed behind Boyes' warehouse at Eastfield. A Dipper was noted at Scalby MIlls and two Lesser Black backed Gulls were at the Open Air Theatre. A Great Northern Diver was in South Bay and a White Wagtail was accompanying 14 Pied Wagtails in a Cloughton field. Two Oystercatchers, three pairs of Tufted Ducks, two pairs of Little Grebes and a pair of Grey Wagtails were at Brompton ponds. Four Goldeneye remained at Wykeham South Lake (Water Park) along with eight Tufted Ducks.
