Eastern dawn

The long week-end (Thursday-Sunday) was exciting, frustrating and exhausting ! Birding lasted for 13 hours each day from first light and alot of ground was covered. The birds at Flamborough pulled me away from Buckton a couple of times but coverage was good. Migrants at Buckton included 25 Whinchat, 15 Wheatear, 2 Spotted Flycatcher, Pied Flycatcher, 2 Redstart, 10 Willow Warbler, Reed Warbler, Lesser Whitethroat, 10 Whitethroat, 4 Garden Warbler, 3 Tree Pipits and 15 Song Thrushes. Visible migration watching accounted for 700 Meadow Pipits, 100 Siskin, 5 Ringed Plover, Ruff, 11 Curlew Sandpipers and 2 Marsh Harriers.
