Dilemma of heading west to try for Pallid harrier or East for Savi's warbler today. The East won out with a stop off at swillington for a couple of common migrants to start and lots of potential at Spurn given the wind direction. Unfortunately it turned out to be the wrong decision with Spurn as disappointing as I've ever known it to be, not even salvaging one year tick there.

Swillington ings

184. Whinchat
185. Grasshopper warbler

North cave wetlands

It was apparent that a phenomenal amount of Black terns were showing up everywhere so took a quick detour here.

186. Black tern

And that was it, very frustrating.
