Thursday 18th April

 A Common Crane circled Gristhorpe Bay about a half mile out at sea before moving steadily north. It was then seen from Long Nab moving north through North Bay following the cliff line over Scalby Nab and then continuing north over Long Nab. Six White Wagtails were in fields north of Long Nab Obs and another White Wagtail was at Johnson's Marsh along with five Shelduck, a Teal and an incubating Coot. A Tree Pipit was at Wrench Green and four Goosander flew north past Marine Drive. At Potter Brompton Carr (viewed from Haybridge): three White Wagtail, one Yellow Wagtail, nine House Martin, two Little Egret, Marsh Harrier and four Teal. At North Yorkshire Water Park Water Sports Lake: a calling Greenshank flew in from the east over the lake and continued south. Approximately 60 Sand Martin, 12 House Martin and a Reed Warbler present.  Blackcap pairs were in gardens in Burniston and Stepney. Pair Bullfinch in a Burniston garden with Siskin pairs noted in two gardens there.
