3rd June 2022

Generally overcast skies, a light/moderate easterly wind and temperatures reaching 12 degrees C. Eight Shelduck and a Red-throated Diver flew south, with another Red-throated Diver, two Manx Shearwaters and 41 Sandwich Terns headed north. Although there were no further signs of yesterday’s Bee-eaters, a Rose-coloured Starling added colour to proceedings when it joined the starling flock in the Gorse Field late afternoon. Elsewhere, five Mute Swans toured the headland, three Ringed Plovers, two Little Ringed Plovers and two Dunlin frequented Thornwick Pools. The Black-browed Albatross remained at RSPB Bempton Cliffs, where another four Ringed Plovers flew north.
