A day on the Yorkshire Coast, can’t beat it. Several Black-necked Grebe had been spending time in the harbour at Scarborough and there’s the Mediterranean Gull’s at Holbeck, as well as waders at Bridlington. So that was Saturday 14th November sorted then. We had one very obliging Black-necked Grebe at Scarborough Harbour and 12 Whooper Swan flew over, 5 Mediterranean Gull at Holbeck, including a 1st and 2nd winter and three adults. A loaf of bread certainly goes down well here. At Bridlington we had some very fine Purple Sandpiper just before the tide started rushing in, managed some decent photos of these stunning little waders. Finishing off at Barmston, with 20 odd Red-throated Diver, a flock of 40 Great Crested Grebe and 3 Goldeneye on the sea and a herd of 20 Whooper Swan heading east over land. No year ticks, but a great day out.
