The stand-out highlight was undoubtedly the Nightjar which roosted in a private garden, just the seventh record for Filey. Otherwise quiet with a Hobby, a Manx Shearwater, two Arctic Skuas and 50 Meadow Pipits through the Gap this morning, a Bar-tailed Godwit in the Bay Corner, and 31 Grey Seals and one Common Seal in the Brigg area; 18 Purple Sandpipers were on the Brigg end.

Yesterday (8th), a better morning’s vismig included 890 Meadow Pipits and 85 Siskin through the Gap and smaller numbers through Reighton Sands (with a Grey Plover south there), plus a spotted Flycatcher at Parish Wood, a Whinchat on Carr Naze and 23 Common Terns on the Brigg.
