Our roving site warden, Zoe, spotted 15 whimbrels over the cliffs today. Whimbrels are large, wading birds that breed in the north of Scotland and winter in South Africa. We're getting towards the time of year where the more and more migrants will be passing through or over our reserve, so keep your eyes peeled if you visit!
Over 30 wimbrells spotted flying past flambrough head on sunday 25.7.10.
Thanks Neil, wish i'd seen it myself!
