Sunny Spurn

It appears the weather has taken a turn for the better. A bright, sunny afternoon was spent at Spurn. Very few grounded migrants at the Point itself other than 2 Wheatear in the car park. However, c70 Swallow, 3 House Martin and 1 Sand Martin flew south while viewing over the Point Dunes from the well known Green Beacon 12.30-13.00.

Sitting at the Narrows, 13.25-16.00, the following were counted, in notebook order south unless (N) or (Humber): 108 Brent Geese (Humber), 5 Gannet (4N), 1 Cormorant, 22 Linnet, 135 Swallow, 1 Little Tern, 46 Ringed Plover - 14 Humber and 32 south, 4 Whimbrel, 4 Goldfinch, 1 House Martin, 1 Marsh Harrier, 1 Starling, 1 Sand Martin, 1 flava Wagtail, 1 Reed Bunting (N), 484+ Dunlin (Humber), 344+ Grey Plover (Humber) 84 Bar-tailed Godwit (Humber), 1 Peregrine and 1 immature Glaucous Gull near the Warren on the Humber on the rising tide.

On the beach these 2 Sanderling posed well...

While other interest found included 14 Peacocks (1 at the Point below) and a Grey Seal
