9th June

The last play of the day turned out to be a winner with a belated report from a member of the public of a Rosy Starling visiting their garden in Easton earlier in the day. Other land-based migrants remained hard to come by but a couple of minor highlights included a very late arriving (or extremely early departing?) Tree Pipit over the Obs in the morning, a Spotted Flycatcher feeding in the Hump and 6 Dunlin at Ferrybridge. The sea provided some entertainment with a trickle of terns throughout the morning, including a pair of Sandwich Terns feeding close offshore; a passing Great Northern Diver was the first for the month and a lone Puffin put in an appearance on the sea in front of the Obs; whilst elsewhere the first returning Great Crested Grebe was at Ferrybridge.
