4th June

If a heard-only fly-by qualifies as the bird of the day then a Serin that just got on the radar of one lucky observer at the Obs during the afternoon was the highlight. The only other worthwhile reports from the land were of an apparently new Lesser Whitethroat at Southwell and 10 Sanderling and 6 Dunlin at Ferrybridge. Breezy conditions saw the sea produce 75 Manx Shearwaters, 7 Common Scoter and singles of Great Skua and Arctic Skua through off the Bill.

An early Marbled White was on the wing at the Bill.

Cooler, breezy conditions saw immigrant moth interest take a dip, with a handful of Rusty-dot Pearl and Silver Y the only species trapped overnight at the Obs.
