Friday 29th July

 A juvenile Caspian Gull was in Cayton Bay this morning and five Common Sandpipers were on Black Rocks. Six Redshank, six Curlew, 12 Oystercatchers, a Turnstone and two Grey Herons were at Scalby Mills. Approximately 30 apparently active Sand Martin nests were noted at the Cayton Bay colony and a Turtle Dove was at the side of the Givendale Road adjacent to Malton Cote. A juvenile Yellow-legged Gull, two Little ringed Plover, a Dunlin and two Teal were at Wykeham East Lake. Highlights north past Long Nab Obs were 1,225 Common Scoter, three Scaup, a Mediterranean Gull, with a juvenile following a plough nearby at Crook Ness. Two Turtle Doves flew south there. Approximately 25 Sandwich Terns were in Jackson's Bay.
