Monday 14th November

 After yesterday's gloom had cleared and more favourable conditions followed, then birds started to move today, particularly wildfowl. A Gannet and Red-throated Diver were in the harbour area, a Brent Goose sp flew inland over North Bay and approximately 80 Carrion Crows (that's quite a murder) were circling over the motor cycle track at Seamer Tip. 51 Pink-footed Geese flew south over Newby, 90 Pink-footed Geese flew low near Helwath Road and the A171 and a single Golden Plover flew south over Ings Road. Two Red-throated Divers were off Marine Drive on the north side of the Castle Headland and 40 Pink-footed Geese flew in off the sea and south. A Short-eared Owl flew high south over the sea past Long Nab early this afternoon. Highlights past Long Nab today were two Black-throated Divers, 12 Dark-bellied and one Pale-bellied Brent Geese, one Pochard, 52 Common Eider, four Red-breasted Mergansers, 12 Goldeneye and seven Puffin (+1 on sea). A single Brambling at Crook Ness left south and a Woodcock was at the short hedge. A remarkable 16 species of wildfowl past South Cliff throughout the day with the highlights being nine Whooper Swan, 18 Dark-bellied Brent Geese (8N), 36 Mallard, five Gadwall, six Pintail, six Goosander, four Goldeneye, one Pochard, and a Velvet Scoter. Also passing south there were one Black-throated Diver, 82 Kittiwake, 62 Little Gull and one Snow Bunting. A Ring Ouzel was still present along with eight Chiffchaff. At Wykeham lakes this afternoon were 19 Common Snipe, two Goldeneye, nine Gadwall, 28 Teal, nine Great crested Grebe, five Little Grebe, 23 Siskin, two Marsh Tit, two Jay, two Bullfinch, nine Redwing and a Mistle Thrush. 32 Great Black-backed Gulls and a first winter Mediterranean Gull roosted at Wykeham East Lake and approximately 250 Jackdaw went to roost. In the Gristhorpe Bay and surrounding area late afternoon were six Dark-bellied Brent Geese, 102 Curlew, one Bar-tailed Godwit three Grey Herons, two pairs of Stonechat, two Chiffchaff, 39 Pied Wagtails were in the field adjacent to the caravan park. A Great Northern Diver was in the harbour. Pink-footed Geese were heard flying over Wrench Green and Burniston soon after dark.

    This is my story and how one person changed my life for good. I lost my job and there was no hope for me. I suffered looking for a job and luckily I came across Mr Mark Toray on a review about Forex, NFT, Binary, and Crypto trade. I borrowed $500 from a colleague to invest with Mr Mark, thank goodness I made a profit of $4000 on the first week, reinvested $1500, and cashed out the remaining balance directly to my bank account. I was able to pay my friend, and convinced him to invest as well. all this happens within a week. I'm very grateful to him for helping me manage my trading account. I will advise all of you who want to invest for the future and a better tomorrow should start with Mr Mark Toray. Some might think this is a joke, but a trial won't hurt. Give this a try and come back to thank me after. Contact him via: Telegram: @Mark4toray_fx, Email: >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
