2nd November 2014

Today saw a Black Guillemot joining the Grey Phalarope (now present for a fourth day) off the Brigg, with highlights from Hunmanby Gap including 159 Siskins and 16 Twite through and 85 Little Gulls offshore. Another quality count of finches yesterday (1st) at the Gap included 263 Siskins, 13 Bullfinches and seven Twite through, along with a very late House Martin south. October ended with three Pomarine Skuas north and an Egyptian Goose and a Med Gull south (JS).
