A Barn Owl was hunting along the A165 at Cayton in the early hours and a Blackcap was singing at Seamer Road Mere. A Blackcap was also at Burton Riggs and a Willow Warbler, Lesser Redpoll and Shelduck were at or near Seamer Tip Pool. A Dipper and a Bullfinch were seen on Scalby Beck from Burniston Road bridge and a Little Ringed Plover flew in off the sea at Long Nab, continuing south. At Potter Brompton Carr, viewed from Heybridge, two Black-tailed Godwits were seen in flight dropping onto the most distant fields and two Wigeon, 15 Teal, four Gadwall, two Shelduck, one Pink-footed Goose and a Redshank were also present there. A pair of Eider were on the sea near to the Sealife Centre this afternoon and a Swallow was at Long Causeway, Wykeham.
