Little Stint on the Brigg (Mark Pearson)

A Little Stint, a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull and a Little Egret were on the Brigg today (JS, MJP) with (possibly the same or another) Yellow-legged Gull in the Bay corner at dusk (MJP). The two Wood Sandpipers again headlined a similarly varied cast of waders at East Lea and the Dams, where three Black-tailed Godwits were new, Teal are up to 30 and Shoveler up to 12.

A Hobby was over over Hunmanby Gap this evening, while two Marsh Harriers together there this morning may have been the ‘pair’ over Primrose Valley yesterday and the day before.¬†Yesterday (27th) also saw two Redstarts and single Pied and Spotted Flycatchers and Lesser Whitethroat at East Lea, with the Short-eared Owl, both flycatchers, a Redstart and a Tree Pipit at the Tip.
