 A few common migrants grounded along the coast today following last night's rain. Extra Chiffchaffs and Goldcrests about, one Blackcap at Crook Ness. Long Nab saw a good southerly movement of 379 Goldfinches this morning. The nearby high tide roost of waders at Cromer Point/Burniston Bay had 6 Grey Plovers, 16 Ringed Plovers, 2 Redshank, and a Dunlin. A Merlin flew north at Long Nab, and 116 Cormorants flew by in flocks (95S, 21N). 31+ Pink-footed Geese were with c550 Greylag Geese at Potter Brompton Carr, also 5 Shoveler, 115 Lapwing, 4 Little Egrets and a Grey Wagtail. A first-winter Kittiwake was in the main harbour. Four Eiders flew south at marine Drive, 200 Pink-footed Geese south over East Ayton, plus 107 inland of Long Nab. 13 Wigeon at Scalby Mills.
