The old haunt of Atwick was visited mid-week by Neil Hart. Many moons ago, it was heavily hit on a regular basis and we turned up a few good birds. Neil Hart was there in the week and enjoyed seeing a Lapland Bunting on the cliff top. Scanning the sea, a Black-throated Diver was showing well close inshore and a couple of pale-bellied Brent Geese flew north.
A trip to Blacktoft was less productive. Just a Marsh Harrier as expected, while my quiet week in Howden was limited to counting Bullfinches in the park during break times... up to 16 most days around the bowling green.
Rather windy as I type... back sometime later with the gull news from Tophill Low NR!
