Weekend back up

Thrashed the place, in between periods of heavy SE rain, mist, wind and clock changes ! Not a bad weekend by any standards but lacking the killer find. The 1st winter Med Gull spent a couple of hours on the village pond on Saturday afternoon (Oct 24th) and constitutes only the 2nd site record. Great vismig with Keith Clarkson at Speeton on Sunday morning (Oct 25th) produced over 1000 Siskin, 220 Tree Sparrow and several Crossbills cutting South in to the head wind to bypass Flamborough. The Lapland Bunting was a delight showing down to 10ft. The long weekend finished with 4 Whooper Swans on the deck in a large field on Buckton cliff top before departing SE, then over Flamborough before heading out over Bridlington Bay. Many leafs are down and winter is almost here, but just enough time for an eastern finale.
