26th July


A reminder that there's an In Focus field event at the Obs between 10am and 4pm tomorrow, Saturday 27th July.

Overcast skies and a post-dawn shower looked promising today and the oddest feature of what unfolded was the continuing utter lack of Willow Warblers; half a dozen Sedge Warblers, a Yellow-legged Gull and a Reed Warbler (...that rather unexpectedly was in full song) looked to be only newcomers at the Bill, with 21 Dunlin and 3 Sanderling making up a meagre wader tally at Ferrybridge. The only other reports were of 5 Balearic and 4 Manx Shearwaters through off the Bill.
