26th July

It didn't take long for the weather to revert back to grim mode, and today's wind and at times heavy rain again restricted birding activities to seawatching at the Bill and wader/tern watching at Ferrybridge. Sea totals at the Bill included 100 commic terns, 50 Manx Shearwaters. 18 Common Scoter, 12 Balearic Shearwaters and a Yellow-legged Gull, whilst the Ferrybridge tally included 92 Dunlin, 13 Sandering, 12 'new' Little Terns and a Whimbrel.

Immigrant moth interest dwindled, with a Four-spotted Footman the best of the selection at the Obs.
