17th July

Another little flurry of common migrants maintained interest today, with a dozen Willow Warblers and singles of Sedge Warbler and Spotted Flycatcher grounded at the Bill and 30 Sand Martins through overhead there. Common Scoter accounted for the numbers on the sea, with 61 through off the Bill where 6 Balearic Shearwaters, 3 Manx Shearwaters and singles of Whimbrel and Curlew were also logged. The only other news was of 5 Curlew and singles of Whimbrel and Redshank at Ferrybridge.
