1st May 2014

A fairly quiet start to the month, with a White Wagtail still at East Lea, Grasshopper Warbler and Great Northern Diver still at Hunmanby Gap, a singing Cuckoo at the Dams, a Short-eared Owl at the Tip and a continuing movement of Barnacle Geese, with a flock of 250 south this morning.

A colour-ringed Common Gull at East Lea this morning was ringed on 27th July last year on a remote island off NW Norway – full details to follow.
