Amongst the hundreds of Goldfinches present around the reserve at the moment best sighting of the day was an albino bird found by Johnny and Rachael. Shows that almost every day new birds are moving through, as this individual would certainly have been noticed previously!
A couple of Wheatears and a single Whinchat were still present around the fence-lines near to the RAF station and calm conditions at the end of the day brought a fresh Chiffchaff and Goldcrest into the Dell. Two Curlews fed on the short turf inside the RAF station and a Buzzard heading west caused a little panic amongst the thousands of Herring Gulls taking advantage of freshly ploughed fields in the area.
Out to sea, a large fish shoal in Filey Bay is bringing the rare opportunity to see diving Gannets close at hand. If you're not lucky enough to see them from the viewpoints, head into Filey itself for this breath taking sight.
