27th July

With long portions of the day blighted by limited visibility and a stiff westerly enthusiasm took a hit and sightings weren't up to much today. Two each of Manx and Balearic Shearwater, and a lone Arctic Skua passed through off the Bill, 2 Yellow-legged Gulls and singles of Whimbrel, Common Sandpiper, Wheatear and Willow Warbler were about on the land there and 53 Dunlin, 18 Ringed Plover, 17 Sanderling, 15 Turnstone, 4 Whimbrel, 2 Curlews and a Redshank were at Ferrybridge.

The dreary conditions ensured there was plenty of action at Ferrybridge including these two Whimbrel...
