Northern cliffs

Spent a pleasant hour on the northern cliffs at Flamborough, recovering after the 16 hour drive to Aberdeen and back the day before for the Sandhill Crane. The Buff-breasted Sandpiper was showing well, even if the light was a little dire. Excellent views of a juvenile Hobby hunting insects along the cliff edge on the way back. Great that this part of Flamborough is being covered so well these days, there is now virtually full coverage from Speeton to Barmston, just imagine that ten years ago ! Buckton didnt produce much but a smallish wader with clean white underparts that flew directly over head calling a rippling 'PREET' really needed to have landed, it didnt, I suspected Pec Sand immediatly but was helpless to progress it any further.
