26th July

The highlight of the day was a Short-eared Owl at the Bill. On the sea were 63 Manx Shearwater, 3 Mediterranean Gulls and a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull. There was a little more action on the land today with 9 Sedge Warblers, 7 Willow Warblers, 2 Yellow Wagtail, 2 Collard Dove  and singles of Blackcap and Common Sandpiper. Waders at Ferrybridge included 66 Dunlin and 4 Sanderling.

Immigrant moth interest at the Obs consisted of just 19 Diamond-back Moth, 3 each of Rusty-dot Pearl and Silver Y, and a single European Corn-borer; oddities from other sites included a Vestal at the Grove.
