Friday 26th August

 A Hobby flew SW and two Bar-tailed Godwits flew S past Long Nab this morning. A Northern Wheatear in front of the Obs filtered W. Five Turtle Doves were on overhead wires between Burniston and Cloughton and approximately 350 Greylag Geese were near Darrells Hall Farm, Wykeham along with three Common Buzzards and a Sparrowhawk nearby. 17 Common Buzzards flew over Burniston in small groups moving through an arc between W and S in a 70 minute period early afternoon. Seven Common Swifts flew south there and single Blackcap and Chiffchaff were in a Burniston garden. A further three Common Buzzards were over Long Causeway Road, Wykeham. One Common Sandpiper, three Lapwing, two Great crested Grebes, two Great Black-backed Gulls and a mixed flock of approximately 500 Canada and Greylag Geese were at Wykeham East Lake. Two juvenile Arctic Skuas flew north along Scalby Nab cliff top this evening.
