Yorkshire ticks

A couple of Yorkshire ticks for me this past week, I nipped to Fairburn Ings after work on Thursday where one of the half dozen or so Black Winged Stilts touring the country at present had dropped in for a couple of days, it was on the New Flashes and typically right at the back so no good for a decent photo but I took a few record shots anyway.

Then on Saturday morrning me and Andy went over to Aldbrough where the Roller seen at Spurn on Tuesday has relocated, it was found on Thursday evening and was still present this morning and performing really well, a superb bird and only my second one in this country, there was also a pair of Grey Partridges in the field and two Turtle Doves flew over. In the afternoon we went over to Blacktoft Sands where a Marsh Warbler has been singing and showing in the vegetation by the path towards Singleton Hide for the last few days but it hadn’t been seen or heard for a couple of hours when we got there, we staked it out for a while and it finally started singing just after 5pm but it didn’t show and soon shut up again, maybe have to give it another go if it hangs around.
