A Velvet Scoter, a Bonxie, four Manx Shearwaters over the sea and 40 Meadow Pipits, 64 Swallows and a Siskin over the land were the best of the Gap vismig, while a Whinchat, a Wheatear, 50 Goldfinch and 70 Linnets were at Gristhorpe Bay. Three Little Gulls, two Bonxies and 26 Manx Shearwaters were the best of the sea. Five Greenshank were among the usuals at the Dams, while our ringing team continue their successful nocturnal sessions on the Brigg – a Greenshank, three Redshank, two Dunlin and three Purple Sandpipers were caught and ringed, the latter two species with colour-rings.
