Bridlington Shearwater and Skua Cruise

Posted Sunday 9th September 2007 at 19:39 by Hotspur
3 Lifers, 1 Year Tick, 1 Yorkshire Year Tick. Not a lot to celebrate then. Except that I found a Great Shearwater! On the East coast. Magic A Bonxie and a few Manxie's plus shedloads of Sooty Shearwaters and Light, Intermediate and Dark Morph Arctic Skuas. Flyover Greenshank, Harbour Porpoise and loadsa Little Gulls and Terns. Curlew Sand at Tophill was cool as was Knot for Yorks this year. All GOOD!! Hehe.

Flamboro

Spent this afternoon at Flamboro- millions of Terns off the head with a smattering of Shearwaters and Skuas including my first Sooty Shearwaters. Also some ringing at Thronwick bay. I have extracted my first Linnet and ringed 6 Linnets and a Sedge Warbler. Nice.

You cant start a birding blog with a post saying you've done no birding today can you? I am. I'm sat on my fat backside after work and i can't be bothered to move. In all fairness to myself yesterday I spent the afternoon at Titchwell Safari Park and tomorrow I am going to start my escapades in ringing at flamborough head. Hard core I ain't

Down at Titchwell I had a pleasant afternoon gaining a few crap year ticks:-Knot, R-t Diver and Gypo Goose. I know they are all lame and I really...
