15th May

Not much sign of a migrant improvement today - in fact there was another 11 hour blank from the Obs mist-nets so it really was quiet! The few odds and ends uncovered by the fieldworkers included 2 Reed Warblers, 2 Garden Warblers, a Sedge Warbler and a Lesser Whitethroat at the Bill and a Spotted Flycatcher at Reap Lane; even waders failed to save the day with just 3 Sanderling, 2 Bar-tailed Godwits and a Whimbrel of note at Ferrybridge. The sea fared only slightly better, with 2 Arctic Skuas, a Great Skua and a Pomarine Skua amongst what little else was on the move off the Bill.
