Wednesday 13th September

 A GREAT SHEARWATER, initially seen off Filey Brigg at 0655hrs, was tracked north by observers at Cornelian at 0713hrs, Marine Drive at 0727hrs and then off Long Nab at 0732hrs. A Balearic Shearwater passed south at Cornelian and a juvenile Long-tailed Skua was on the sea there. 17 Common Terns were noted at Scalby Mills along with six Redshank, one Curlew and a Grey Wagtail. Approximately 200 Gannets were feeding off Marine Drive and a large number of Auks were feeding off South Bay and in the harbour. A 1st calendar year Caspian Gull flew north past Long Nab along with three Manx Shearwater and 12 Arctic Skua (1S). A Dark-bellied Brent Goose flew south. An immature Little Ringed Plover, one Common Sandpiper, 10 Teal, 72 Lapwing, 235 Greylag Geese and 205 Canada Geese were at the East Lake, North Yorkshire Water Park this afternoon.
