19th August

Another unremarkable day was only saved from the recent monotony by a passing Osprey - initially seen heading south past Chesil Cove it was soon re-sighted as it headed on out to sea over the Bill. The sea was quiet with just a handful of Manx Shearwaters and a Bonxie west. Ferrybridge was still very busy, with 2 Black-tailed Godwits an addition to the tally for the last few days.
