Remains fairly quiet in the County with just a few snippets over the weekend such as Richard's Pipit at Flamborough and Wood Lark south at Spurn. Even the Waxwings have leveled out a bit although bird's moving down the coast suggest plenty more to come. The Glaucous Gull still keeps popping up at Scarborough and one or two Caspian Gulls are there to be had too.

No sign of the 'Azorean Yellow-legged Gull' in the Wintersett roost this evening. The potential of a future split didn't appear to convince many Yorkshire listers and of the 16 birders present at dusk all but two or three were locals. Not a complete waste of time for some of those who had come a fair distance though, as at least one managed to ensure Ring-necked Parakeet was added to his tally in between numerous telephone calls about push-chair accessories!

Still not much change in last few days, just more signs of the impending winter, so here's a few reminders....

|This rather dark looking Glaucous Gull was found in Scarborough Harbour Friday - Roy Harvey. The rather long wings and rounded head may suggest this bird to be a female.|

| Waxwing - John Hewitt. This bird was photographed in Easington this morning and later found its way on to the photographers garden list.|
|Yes, winter is here as this flock of Snow Buntings at Beacon Ponds seems to confirm. - John Hewitt|

Today's main bird was this cracking Great White Egret in Scarborough. It was still present late afternoon and according to local fable (dog walkers) it was there yesterday too. Well who'd have thought?
