A day of moderate south-westerly winds, sunny intervals and temperatures reaching 17 degrees C. During the seawatch, 15 Common Scoters, a Blue Fulmar, four Manx Shearwaters and nine Sandwich Terns flew north, with seven Canada Geese heading south.
Three Little Egrets flew south over South Landing, whilst migrant waders included three Dunlin, a Ringed Plover, two Little Ringed Plovers and a Bar-tailed Godwit. The elusive Bee-eater made a brief re-appearance at RSPB Bempton Cliffs once again; observed over the Dell and then flying towards the cliffs. A singing Reed Warbler along Stonepit Lane, Bempton was an undoubted migrant; additional passerine interest included two Garden Warblers (South Dykes & South Landing), three Nuthatch in South Dykes and three Corn Buntings at Thornwick.
