21st June 2022

A largely warm, sunny day with onshore winds developing in the afternoon; temperatures peaked at 20 degrees C. Seawatch highlights included 15 Manx Shearwater, a second calendar-year Yellow-legged Gull, 16 Sandwich Terns, eight Common Terns and an Arctic Tern all flying north. The Black-browed Albatross showed well on the sea off North Landing early afternoon before it returned to RSPB Bempton Cliffs in the evening. The Thornwick area attracted six Mute Swans and a Little Grebe.
