11th June

The novelty of some rainfall - admittedly not much but the first for three weeks or so - did no particular favours and, at least for passerines, it remained very quiet. Singles of Reed Warbler, Chiffchaff and Willow Warbler were new at the Bill, whilst the wader tally at Ferrybridge was relatively static at 19 Dunlin, 8 Ringed Plovers and singles of Grey Plover, Sanderling, Bar-tailed Godwit and Redshank. The sea wasn't well watched, with a lone Balearic Shearwater off the Bill the only report of note.
