 Four Whooper Swans flew south at Long Nab early  this morning and continued south over Scarborough Castle a short while later. 220 Redwings had also passed Long Nab by 1000hrs with another 40 present in the area. Two Great Northern Divers and a Great crested Grebe were in South Bay and a Red-throated Diver was in the harbour. A male Blackcap again visited a Crossgates garden along with a Marsh Tit, a garden first for the observer. 64 Pink-footed Geese flew south east over Taylor Way. At Thornton Carrs/Charity Farm and the Sewage Works there were two Green Sandpiper, a Kingfisher, three Grey Wagtails, approximately 240 Redwing and approximately 140 Fieldfare.
