A nicer day was forecast for today, I decided to spend the morning at Wykeham, it was quite misty up there though but it burnt off by mid-morning, a good selection of Passerines were seen by High Brow while I was waiting for the mist to lift included several Crossbills. With visibility improving I dropped into Troutsdale, Buzzards performed well as usual and a pair of Peregrines crossed the valley but the Goshawks were disappointing with just a couple of brief sightings. I headed off to Flamborough in the afternoon, fairly quiet really I thought there may have been a few Spring migrants about, no sign of any Firecrests down Old Fall neither.
