Tuesday 6th September

 There was no sign of yesterday's Hoopoe at Staintondale today, but a Raven flew over and 32 Swallows flew south. A Turtle Dove was on overhead wires between Brompton and Snainton on the low roads and a Tree Pipit, Whinchat and two Willow Warblers were along South Cliff this morning. A Balearic Shearwater flew south past Long Nab at 0815hrs and a Kingfisher was at Scalby Mills. A  Northern Wheatear was on the rock armour at Marine Drive along with four Purple Sandpipers this afternoon and a Pied Flycatcher was on the north side of Castle Hill below the archway. The highlights of the days observations at Long Nab and Hundale Point included three Pied Flycatchers (two by Cliff Top House, one in Crook Ness), three Whinchat, six Northern Wheatear and  a Great crested Grebe fishing below the Obs. Moving past Long Nab Obs were one drake Greater Scaup, two Little Egrets, 118 Manx Shearwaters, 25 Arctic Skuas and two Skua sp. south and a first calendar year  Caspian Gull north.
