The Woodchat at Spurn Friday - Rich Willison
The weekend was a bit of an anti climax with most of the birds seen earlier in the week having moved on and there was little new to replace them. A few bits remained at Spurn on the Saturday including a Red backed Shrike and the Nightjar whilst a Common Rosefinch made itself heard in Easington. The only Long-tailed Skua reported flew past Sunk Island, not your average sea watchers most frequent stake out and the nearest we got to the predicted Bee Eater was belated news of one reported near Goole Hospital. Sickening!

Request for photos of Wykeham Honey Buzzards The Honey Buzzards have been showing over the last week or so at Wykeham. If anyone gets any reasonable shots of any HBs please could you send them
to John Harwood, (Scarborough) at All photos will be gratefully received and will help with ongoing studies of this species there. Visitors will also have a chance of seeing Goshawk, Turtle Dove, Crossbill during the day and Nighjars can be heard at dusk.
