11th June

Far from reaping the harvest of quality that we might have hoped for, this week continues to disappoint. The Bill struggled to get on the board, with a new Chiffchaff on the land, a trickle of hirundines, Swifts and a Whimbrel overhead, and 6 Manx Shearwaters and 5 commic terns through on the sea the best that could be mustered. Some variety at Ferrybridge included 6 Black-headed Gulls, 5 Sanderling, 2 Grey Herons, 2 Shelducks and a Whimbrel.
