After some frustration at being given the run around by Franklin’s gull over recent weeks, missing it by an hour on one occasion and it being present at times when I couldn’t go and disappearing at times when I could, I had decided to head up to the area for roseate terns this weekend and hope to cross paths with it or that it may be refound.

Instead, news of Buff breasted sandpiper at Blacktoft meant a different route and an alternative way to get my 300th Yorkshire bird (at least as long as lesser and common redpoll are not lumped).

Blacktoft sands

Lots of waders on offer here including the aforementioned sandpiper.

591. (216) Buff breasted sandpiper (1st Yorkshire)

With 2 others in the car, petrol costs were not unreasonable so decided after this early success to revert to the original plan.

South Gare

592. (217.) Roseate tern

Took a lot longer than hoped for to finally get one amongst the common, sandwich and 1 little terns and a few more waders to complete an impressive number of charadriformes seen today.

I see that the Franklin’s gull continued to taunt during the week before disappearing for the weekend. Had rather more luck doing some sea watching at Flamborough.

593. (218.) Arctic skua
594. (219.) Great skua
595. (220.) Balearic shearwater

Along with the currently resident pied crow - not sure what to do with that one on the list.

Out on the Wirral today, managed 2 out of 3 targets, the spotted crake proving to be too elusive.

Hilbre Island

596. (221.) Bonaparte's gull

Burton mere

---. (222.) Cattle egret

Frampton

597. (223.) Stilt sandpiper (1st UK)

Idle Valley

598. (224.) Red crested pochard

One of those weeks, only just getting around to updating from last Sunday at Spurn.

601. (227.) Common rosefinch

The only addition, although retrospectively rather amusing to watch everyone trying to string a pheasant into a corncrake, it was a bit annoying at the time, twice leaving the rosefinch area on dodgy news.

Probably also able to stick my previously undisclosed Marsh warbler on the list with breeding season now over.

602. (228.) Marsh warbler (1st Yorkshire)
