Sunday 14th August

 A Marsh Harrier flew north past a foggy Long Nab this morning, a Grey Plover flew south there and a Marsh Tit was again in the ringing plantation. A juvenile Goshawk, Short-eared Owl, two Common Buzzards, a Barn Owl  and a Kestrel provided some raptor action at Seamer Tip Pools area and 14 Common Swift flew south over Burniston where a Willow Warbler frequented a garden. Another Willow Warbler frequented a Northstead garden. A Wood Sandpiper and a Green Sandpiper  dropped into Wykeham East Lake briefly before flying off high to the south. Two Black-tailed Godwits there were later joined by a third colour ringed individual and a 2nd calendar year male Marsh Harrier flew east. Also present at Wykeham East Lake were 560 Greylag Geese, one Teal, one Shoveler, one Gadwall, two Common Sandpipers and a Dunlin passed through. 19 Common Sandpipers and a Yellow Wagtail were at Wykeham Water Park Lake and a Greenshank flew south there. A Greenshank, Whimbrel and two Common Sandpipers flew over Hovingham Drive. The Cuckoo was still at Lebberston Cliff.
