A day of sunny intervals, light winds that started as westerlies but ended onshore and a top temperature of 17 degrees C. No fewer than three singing Marsh Warblers were located on the northern side of the headland between Thornwick and North Landing. Other migrants included two Short-eared Owls together, a Hobby and one Spotted Flycatcher.

One of the highlight’s was the sight of a Nightjar flying in off the sea at RSPB Bempton Cliffs; the reserve also hosted a Redwing.
