Saturday, July 26th, 2014

Overcast conditions soon gave way to warm sunshine once again, whilst the northerly winds reduced in strength. Two small fishing boats off the Fog Station attracted a small flock of gulls early morning; a 2nd calendar-year Baltic Gull was attracted to the melee before it flew into Bridlington Bay. This was followed by a juvenile Caspian Gull (both Martin Garner, Craig Thomas); the latter was then relocated on the beach at Sewerby late afternoon. In addition, 17 Manx Shearwaters flew north, as did two Bonxies, 38 Common and 11 Arctic Terns.

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2014

A light north-north-east wind and overcast conditions resulted in a quiet seawatch, with several Manx Shearwaters and Common Terns tracking north and a Bonxie chasing gulls offshore.

Thornwick Pool held two Dunlin, a Redshank and a single Snipe. Yellow Wagtails have featured over recent days, but the first two juveniles fed on the water’s edge today. A Barn Owl was carrying food back to its nearby nest, indicating it had produced a second brood. The species is experiencing an excellent year locally, with at least seven pairs breeding on the Headland.

The warm weather has also contributed to several records of rare moths over recent days, including a Marbled Yellow Pearl and a Blackneck; both first records for the Headland.

The weather warmed up significantly today,  with south-westerly winds ending a long run of cool northerlies. The morning seawatch was quiet, the highlight being a ‘Blue’ Fulmar and 10 Manx  Shearwater flying north.  An adult Little Ringed Plover was at Thornwick Pool (records of this wader have increased significantly since FBO and Thornwick Holidays created the new wader habitat) along with 1 Yellow Wagtail. At South Landing the 700-strong Common Scoter flock was still present along with 5 Common Eider. The Corncrake was calling again at 2100.

July began with clear skies and light winds from a Northerly direction. The highlight on the early morning seawatch were 2 Little Egret flying north along with a single Arctic Tern and 15 Manx Shearwater. The large Common Scoter flock off South Landing remains with 700 counted today. An immature Mute Swan flew north and a single Willow Warbler was in the Coastguard Gardens. Corn Buntings are now scarce on the outer headland so one singing by the lighthouse early morning was a surprise. Opposite Millenium Wood the Corncrake was heard again at 2230. By far the rarest find today was potentially a new moth for Flamborough if the suspected ID can be confirmed; a White Colon caught in the Lighthouse trap.
