Friday 31st May

 A strong cool northerly wind brought lots of common seabirds inshore today. Seawatching at Long Nab Bird Observatory totals of birds moving north (5.5 hours) - 2 Teal, 110 Common Scoters (+ 6 south), 12 Manx Shearwaters, 468 Fulmars, Great Northern Diver, 4 Red-throated Divers and lots of Gannets, auks and Kittiwakes. Two Crossbills flew SW at Potter Brompton Carr, also 8 Little Egrets, 6 Teal, 4 Shoveler. An Arctic Skua was picked up exhausted in Osgodby (now in care at Ryedale Wildlife Rescue). Two Turtle Doves at Harwood Dale.
