Friday 28th October

 A very vocal Yellow-browed Warbler was again at Crook Ness this morning and a Common/Pallid Swift was seen to the north of South Cliff briefly at 1040hrs and a probable Pallid Swift was briefly at Scalby Mills this morning at 1057hrs leading to speculation that it may have been the bird seen previously at South Cliff. A Common/Pallid Swift was also seen at Hayburn Wyke. Nine Gadwall, 60 Blackbirds were at Seamer Tip Pool and two Redwing and a Long-tailed Tit were at Taylor Way. Highlights through South Cliff this morning were two Swallow, two House Martin and three Twite and at least 22 Little Gulls were in South Bay. Approximately 20 Little Gulls, 100 Wigeon, 2 Bar-tailed Godwits, a female Goosander and 2 Chiffchaffs were at Scalby Mills. A Yellow-browed Warbler was in the shrubs by the picnic area on the plateau in Royal Albert Park to the north side of Castle headland this afternoon. 61 Golden Plover, 33 Little Gulls and a first winter Caspian Gull flew south at Long Nab and three Twite flew north. A Great White Egret flew south over Scalby Nab late morning.
