RINGING WEEK begins tomorrow in the Top Scrub – full details here

Today was notable for excellent visible migration at Hunmanby Gap, with a long list of quality totals from this morning’s watch. Highlights included 423 Tree Sparrows and 34 Reed Buntings (both site record counts), two Ring Ouzels, 226 Skylarks, 164 Pink-footed Geese and 5 Whooper Swans (full counts viewable here).

Yesterday saw scant returns but for a Bar-tailed Godwit in the bay corner and 127 Skylarks through at the Gap.
