4th June 2022

A cold, overcast day, with temperatures pegged back at 11 degrees C in a moderate north-north-easterly wind. Seawatching produced 45 Canada Geese flying south, 15 Manx Shearwaters and 12 Sandwich Terns. Two Mistle Thrush, a singing Reed Warbler in a hedge and three Corn Buntings were present on the outer head. Thornwick Pools attracted three Ringed Plovers, three Little Ringed Plovers, two Dunlin and a Common Sandpiper. A male Bluethroat was reported at RSPB Bempton Cliffs by visitors, where the Black-browed Albatross returned to the cliffs late evening; six Ringed Plovers and a Whimbrel also flew north-west there.
