Tuesday 29th November

 Pink-footed Geese were moving today. 70 flew south over Stepney, approximately 100 flew south over Hutton Buscel, 92 flew south over Wykeham Lakes and 230 in three skeins flew south east over Harwood Dale Lake. A single Russian White-fronted Goose was with a single Pink-footed Goose and the feral Greylag Goose population for its second day at Harwood Dale Lake. Up to 20 Waxwings were again in the Wreyfield Road berry trees and a single Waxwing was at Raven Close, Crossgates. Three Dippers, including a singing bird were on Thornton Dale beck and a single Dipper was again in Peasholm Glen. Five Whooper Swans flew south past Marine Drive. Little Auks also featured off the coast today. One flew north out of South Bay and a second Little Auk was feeding opposite post 52 approximately 15 minutes later. A Little Auk flying south off Marine Drive a few minutes late may have been the same bird. A Little Auk flew north past Long Nab and one was photographed at Scalby Mills. An Arctic Tern was still in North Bay and a Chiffchaff was at the Open Air Theatre. Another Chiffchaff was on the north side of Castle Hill near the toilets and a Great Northern Diver was in South Bay. A Water Rail, Kingfisher, approximately 100 Siskin and

20 Long-tailed Tits were at Wykeham Coarse fishing lake. A Kingfisher flew from the Open Air Theatre towards Peasholm Park. A large flock of approximately 250  unspecified Corvids was in Hutton Buscel.
