A brief seawatch produced 4 Manx and 6 Common Scoter loafing offshore. The main business of the day was an Atlas visit.

The goose bombing towards me across the fields proved to be a real surprise when it banked to reveal large white patches in the wings, Egyptian Goose. Presumably this was the individual that has been hanging around Staithes out on an excursion.

There appeared to be a bit of a Willow Warbler drop with 29 recorded but there were also local birds feeding young, I've heard few singing birds here this year. Also of note Lesser Whitethroat and plenty of Common Whitethroats, these also feeding young.
