Bewick's Swans!

Top sighting yesterday in the form of 3 Bewick's Swans (P.68, S.34) at Long Bank, Kilnsea. A rare bird in Yorkshire these days. Not like the late eighties when I made my first visit to the North Duffield/Bubwith area from my "then home" in Scunthorpe. Three figure numbers of both species were present on the floods...MAGIC!

This morning started well with an impressive flock of Ringed Plover (c50) on the beach at Easington (P.69, S.35). A few Sanderling (S.36) were also present.

Sterling efforts have obviously taken place regarding the Spurn "clean up". I would have helped but I was working at the weekend.

On the way home I noticed someone was having trouble with their car!!!

A Volvo too
