Saturday, 04 August 2018

A hot and sunny day. 

Watches:0650-1015.

Today saw the AGM held at the Obs, followed by the committee meeting where the thoughts of Sausage and Burgers in a bun at the annual and ever popular Friends of Spurn BBQ were not far from peoples minds. The BBQ is always well attended and it was nice to see a few nice faces, among the usual locals.

A big clear out of yesterdays Pied Flycatchers with only 4 seen today, but a Wood Warbler at Kew was a nice first of the autumn and other migrants included 28 Willow warbler, 5 Chiffchaff, 1 Whinchat, 1 Wheatear and 1 Tree Pipit.

A nice surprise came in the form of 2 Crane in fields by Kilnsea wetlands which eventually appeared to leave north west, but presumably the same birds flew south at Gibraltar point a couple of hours later.

Also on the move were 3 Teal, 10 Common Scoter, 137 Gannet, 2 Cormorant, 1 Fulmar, 1 Marsh Harrier, 48 Whimbrel, 1 Turnstone, 11 Knot, 11 Sanderling, 4 Dunlin, 2 Redshank, 3 Kittiwake, 12 Common Tern, 1 Bonxie, 1 Hobby, 15 Sand Martin, 18 Swallow, 3 House Martin, 17 Falva  and 2 Alba Wagtail.

Friday, 03 August 2018

Watches 0630-1645.

There was a suberb and interesting arrival today with 41 Pied Flycatcher counted, unfortunately though no-one did south of the Warren so obviously the total would have been much higher. The origin though is harder to pin down with a continental arrival usually the favourite, with a good arrival all along the east coast, but with little back up of other species there is always the possibility of British breeders in an extreme return migration? The only other species really caught up in the arrival were a Wheatear and 30 Willow Warbler, while 5 Spotted Flycatcher seen at easington sewage works included 3 juveniles and appeared to have bred locally.

Visible migration was less pronounced today, but again Waders led the way with 3 Grey Heron, 49 Whimbrel, 1 Curlew, 2 Bar-tailed Godwit, 33 Turnstone, 61 Knot, 493 Sanderling, 149 Dunlin, 2 Green Sandpiper, 54 Redshank, 18 Common Tern and 12 Arctic Tern while overland 12 Swift, 22 Sand Martin, 335 Swallow, 8 Flava and 12 Meadow Pipit.

As usual the Kilnsea wetlands and Beacon ponds area led the way in terms of diversity and spectacle with the Garganey, 9 Shoveler, 3 Wigeon, 94 Mallard, 34 Teal, 2 Marsh Harrier, 2 Little-ringed Plover, 4 Black-tailed Godwit, 2300 Knot, 7000 Dunlin, 1 Common Sandpiper, 1 Green Sandpiper, 1 Wood Sandpiper, 350 Redshank, 10 Greenshank, 2 Wood Sandpiper, 1 Little Gull, 1 Yellow-legged Gull, 1 Hobby and 2 Peregrine.
