Long-tailed Duck heading over the town (Mark Pearson)

Long-tailed Duck heading over the town (Mark Pearson)

Most news came from visible migrations watches today, from both Hunmanby Gap (0600-0930) and Muston Sands (1020-1220). Highlights from the former included a Marsh Harrier and a Ring Ouzel north (KC), from the latter a Long-tailed Duck (northwest over the town) (MJP), and combined totals of 507 Meadow Pipits, 415 Linnets and three Yellow Wagtails (all north). Two Great Northern Divers remain offshore, while two Common Sandpipers were at the Dams this morning and 14 Golden Plovers headed north there this afternoon.
