23rd June

The Hooded Crow showed up again early in the  morning at the Bill, from where it flew so far out to sea that it was lost to view for a while before about-turning and eventually heading back north over the Obs. New arrivals at the Bill included 3 Grey Herons, a Sand Martin, a Willow Warbler and at least 1 Chiffchaff, whilst another 10 Sand Martins passed through at Ferrybridge. Seawatching at the Bill came up with just 18 Common Scoter and 3 Black-headed Gulls.

A disappointingly poor showing of immigrant/wandering moths at the Obs included 18 Rusty-dot Pearl, 3 Diamond-back Moth, a Cream-bordered Green Pea and a Silver Y.

We will get round to some photos shortly but right now there are just too many Storm Petrels, moths, football matches, articles to write etc going on and far too few hours in the day to fit them all in - sorry!
