Thursday 18th August

 With a change in wind direction, things quietened down considerably. Three Grey Wagtails and a Dipper were at Scalby Mills and a Little Egret was at Scalby Beck weir. Passing south at Long Nab this morning were a Little Gull, two Gadwall, and 13 Lesser Black-backed Gulls (1 passed north) and 44 Great Black-backed Gulls. One Arctic Tern flew north there. Six Great Black-backed Gulls were at Wykeham East Lake and two Green Sandpipers at Northstile Pool, Wrench Green. A female Tawny Owl was calling in Garth End Road, West Ayton late evening. A Marsh Harrier flew NW at Lebberston Cliff, also Cuckoo still. The pale male Honey Buzzard was seen over Wykeham Forest Raptor Viewpoint.
