Flamborough hogs the limelight

Best bird in the County today is an Arctic Warbler at Old Fall Flamborough, still present this evening. Flamborough also scored with a Lesser Yellowlegs on the beach at South Landing but that flew off west early morning. Several coastal sites logged Long-tailed Skuas passing again today. A couple of Quail near Scarborough were noteworthy. Inland, the most popular bird is the Osprey which continues to show well at Sprotbrough Flash.
