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.
