A Yellow-browed Warbler – a long-overdue first of the season! – was by the golf course bridge today (surely more are in the area….). At the Gap, vismig highlights included a record 374 Skylarks north-east and 47 south-west, a Ring Ouzel (also the season’s first), 450 Redwings and 200 Pink-footed Geese. 66 Common Scoters and an Arctic Tern were the best of the sea, with 45 Redwings, three Fieldfares and 12 Bramblings in Top Scrub.
