28th May

With the exception of an evening movement of 250 Manx Shearwaters off the Bill today was not a day of quantity but there was still a few signs of late passage afoot. New passerine arrivals included 3 Spotted Flycatchers, a Grey Wagtail and a Reed Warbler at the Bill where 5 Common Scoter and an Arctic Skua passed through on the sea. Elsewhere, waders at Ferrybridge included 14 Dunlin and 13 Sanderling.

Quality might be lacking - for now at least - but even the prevailing brisk northwesterlies keep turning up signs of late passage, with several Spotted Flycatchers fresh in today © Martin Cade:
