The recent run of quality late spring scarcities continued today with a Marsh Warbler in song at Newbiggin (JH et al); Filey’s 13th record, this is the third consecutive spring we’ve hosted a singing male. The male Red-backed Shrike continued to entertain at the Yacht Club (see photos from yesterday below), but otherwise there was little sign of change.
