10th June 2021

The weather consisted of sunny intervals, light/moderate south-west winds and temperatures that reached 21 degrees C. A Rosy Starling dropped in to bushes near to the car park at RSPB Bempton Cliffs early morning before heading off high north-west; indicative of a bird that had recently made landfall and the third individual on the headland within the last couple of weeks. Other sightings from RSPB Bempton Cliffs included 89 Swifts flying south-east and four Corn Buntings. East of the Dykes, a Turtle Dove visited a garden on the edge of Flamborough village for a second day.
