Thursday 4th May

 Stiff easterly winds and Potter Brompton Carr was alive with waders! A new Scarborough record count of 63 Ruff there this afternoon. Also 4 Wood Sandpipers, Redshank, 2 Greenshank, 20 Ringed Plover, 8 Dunlin, 2 Grey Plovers, Whimbrel, 2 Little Egrets, 12 Shelduck, the pair of Garganey, and a male Blue-headed Wagtail. Bird of the day was the district's fourth Black Kite which was observed flying east at Rillington at 11.45am. A Whooper Swan flew east over Cayton Carrs. South past Long Nab were 3 Arctic Terns, 62 Sandwich Terns, and single Sanderling and Bar-tailed Godwit. A Dunlin was at Seamer Tip, 4 Greenland type Wheatears to the east of the tip, and 3 Whimbrel at Deepdale Carr. A Grasshopper Warbler was along the cinder track between Burniston and Cloughton.
