I nipped to North Cave Wetlands one afternoon after work last week, there had been a Jack Snipe there but no sign of it that day, some Little Grebes posed in front of the hide but otherwise it was generally quiet so I thought I'd go back via North Duffield Carrs and have a look at the Marsh Harriers and Short eared Owls that have been roosting there recently, at least five Harriers came in that evening but no Owls.
Marsh Harrier at North Duffield
terrible light and never came close
few bits and bops had been seen along the East Coast over the last couple of
days, Me, Mark and Pete Watson decided on Flamborough this morning it proved very quiet though, there was nothing
much around South Landing although we fared a little better down Old Fall, lots of
Goldcrests and Redwings coming in plus a few Brambling, we spent some time photographing
the Goldcrests etc but we never found anything better with them. After lunch we headed
off to Filey but by this time the wind had picked up and it proved even quieter
passerine wise, a Short Eared Owl over the Country Park was the best of it. We finished
off at the Dams, a couple of Barn Owls messing on their nestbox and single Black Tailed Godwit and Avocet were the highlights.
