A bright day, with a light/moderate south-westerly wind and a top temperature of 13 degrees C. The flock of 68 Snow Buntings commuted between cliff top fields north-west of Thornwick and RSPB Bempton Cliffs, while the two Shore Larks remained in situ at the former location.

The South Cliffs and immediate hinterland between Beacon Hill and the Fog Station (including South Landing) hosted 13 Curlews, a Woodcock, one Snipe, four Stonechats, six Rock Pipits, 25 Reed Buntings and 30 Yellowhammers.

Additional sightings from RSPB Bempton Cliffs included a ringtail Hen Harrier, 53 Pink-footed Geese, six Grey Partridges, three Short-eared Owls, four Siskin, 25 Yellowhammers, 23 Reed Buntings and 41 Corn Buntings.
