7th May 2014

A fairly quiet couple of days, enlivened mainly by Swift and hirundine passage: over 70 of the former moved west over the Dams this evening, while a Little Ringed Plover dropped in before dusk. A single male Garganey and a showy Cuckoo frequented the same site yesterday (6th) and an Arctic Skua passed the Brigg. Four Greenland Wheatears were at Hunmanby Gap this morning.
