Although the day began with bright skies, a sea fret drifted ashore within a couple of hours after dawn and remained for the rest of the day. There were south-east winds throughout and temperatures often a mere nine degrees C.

The discovery of a Turtle Dove on Beacon Hill was the highlight, with a Grey Plover and a White Wagtail also there. Additional wader interest included yesterday’s Greenshank, four Ringed Plovers and a Whimbrel. A Hobby re-appeared on the outer head.

RSPB Bempton Cliffs attracted a Spotted Flycatcher and 30 Corn Buntings.
