19th August

Just when we thought we'd seen the last of the poor weather with the cessation of the recent incessant wind, along came the drizzle. Despite the general gloom, a few odds and ends managed to make it through with a trickle of Yellow Wagtails and Tree Pipits overhead, and a smattering of Willow Warblers and Garden Warblers in the garden. A steady trickle on the sea included: 10 Balearic Shearwaters, three Bonxies, two Yellow-legged Gulls and an Arctic Skua. Ferrybridge continued its run of form with four Whimbrel of note among the usual fare.
