September 24th and 25th 2010

Last two days have been spent on the coast of Yorkshire enjoying the benefits of a very strong north wind which brought in plenty of seabirds on Friday to Flamborough Head but few migrants while Saturday was spent at Spurn where the wind had shifted to the north west resulting in fewer seabirds but allowed for few migrants to show themselves. From a total of 88 species seen the highlights were:-
Sooty Shearwater, Manx Shearwater, Artic Skua, Great Skua, Long-tailed Skua, Leach’s Petrel, Red-necked Grebe, Red-throated Diver, Pink-footed Geese, Barnacle Geese, Purple Sandpiper, Long-eared Owl, Short-eared Owl, Pied Flycatcher, Redstart, Tree Pipit, Brambling, Redwing, Lapland Bunting, Merlin, Peregrine and Woodcock.
