Sandwich Tern, Brigg (Mark Pearson)

The best of the last few days was an Osprey which headed north over the town on 9th. A Marsh Harrier went south at Gristhorpe Bay the following day, while at the Dams, Little Ringed Plovers, a few Lapwings and the odd Common Sandpiper have been recorded. On the sea, a Bar-tailed Godwit went north yesterday, and small numbers of Manxies, Common Gulls, Black-headed Gulls and Sandwich Terns are passing daily; on the Brigg, a few Turnstone and Oystercatchers and a single Knot are present.
