30th July

Apologies for the lack of blog post yesterday, but it's never a good sign when the entirety of the weekends sightings can fit onto a single page of the clipboard! Today's ever increasing South-Westerly meant the focus was almost entirely out to sea, with a total of 3 European Storm Petrels, 1 Sooty Shearwater, 1 Balearic Shearwater, 13 Manx Shearwater and 13 Common Scoter seen off the Bill. Elsewhere, a total of 54 Dunlin, 10 Curlew, 12 Sanderling, 1 Black-tailed Godwit, and 6 Turnstones were seen at Ferrybridge.
