Tophill Low NR in East Yorks has seen a few birds of prey (BoPs) around in recent days.
So the simple of task of looking at the sky filled today's activities for 6 hours. Not quite as dull as it sounds, 4 Marsh Harriers moved south thru the site as did a couple of Buzzards (+ the site regulars showing on and off) and an immature male Peregrine moved south late-afternoon at great height. A Green Sandpiper dropped in before moving south, 100+ Sand Martin, 530+ Swallow, 125+ House Martin and a few Swifts moved thru and it was a pleasant day watching 'Vis mig' without having to walk in the wind.
