Nothing like a few warblers to give your year list a summery feel. Pity the weather had other ideas. I feel a bit like I have my own personal cloud following me round at the moment.

Fairburn

407. (148.) Whitethroat
408. (149.) Blackcap
409. (150.) Cetti's warbler
410. (151.) Sedge warbler
411. (152.) Reed warbler
412. (153.) Spoonbill

Cuckoo somehow managed to slip away unseen.

Swillington

---. (154.) Common swift
413. (155.) House martin
---. (156.) Swallow

Able to twitch a bit further afield with a car full of people, and more promising weather forecast for Sunday, we decided to try for the long staying White winged scoter.

Not the best start dipping black grouse on the way up but things improved thereafter.

Musselbrough

---. (157.) Red breasted merganser
414. (158.) Velvet scoter
415. (159.) WHITE WINGED SCOTER
416. (160.) Gannet - surprised not to have this on my list and I think I may have overlooked it from a previous trip.
417. (161.) Surf scoter

Aberlady bay

---. (162.) Whimbrel

North Berwick (No shortage of Gannets here but strangely could not find Razorbill)

418. (163.) Kittiwake
419. (164.) Puffin
420. (165.) Sandwich tern

Druridge pools

421. (166.) Garganey

Cresswell pond

422. (167.) Glossy ibis
423. (168.) Wheatear

Was not optimistic about connecting with American bittern as reports have been scarce and often heard rather than seen. With three in the car, we committed to trying anyway and managed two brief views of the bird swimming within an hour of arrival, the first of which was scoped.

Carlton Marsh

428. (174.) Hobby
429. (175.) Bittern
430. (176.) AMERICAN BITTERN

Frampton

1st report of Short toed lark sent us in the wrong direction, decided to bird frampton for the afternoon although there wasn’t much left on site compared to what has been reported through the week.

431. (177.) Little gull
432. (178.) Curlew sandpiper

With wood warbler now very unreliable in the Bolton abbey area, a change of tactic this year.

Ladybower reservoir area

434. (179.) Woodcock

Padley gorge

435. (180.) Wood warbler
---. (181.) Pied flycatcher
436. (182.) Redstart
437. (183.) Tree pipit

Then back to Ladybower for a failed try at mountain hare

438. (184.) Garden warbler

A memorable moment also worth mentioning was having ring ouzel and cuckoo in the same tree in the same scope view.

Enjoying my time off work, decided to upgrade my recent Iberian chiffchaff to a Yorkshire tick, then take a walk on the strid. With the chiffchaff in the bag, my plans were ruined by the news of my most wanted bird, Quail showing on the bowling green at Hartlepool headland.

452. (200.) QUAIL !!!

Then tied up a couple of plastic loose ends.

Hartlepool

453. (201.) Rose ringed parakeet

Adel dam

454. (202.) Mandarin duck

My winning warbler streak came to a close today, dipping the Savi's at Spurn. Apparently heard a few times early morning but nothing all afternoon, probably, it will be back this evening but I couldn't stay that long.

Consolation came by way of:

455. (203.) Golden oriole

Though even this was only seen flying away.

After not quite going for the Audouin's gull on Friday evening, I had hoped it might be available this weekend so when it failed to do so I thought the weekend may end up being a write off, however, a second Yorkshire mega in 3 days put this right.

Spurn

590. (214.) Greater sand plover - 1st UK

Managed to get views of it before it was flushed by a Peregrine this morning.

North cave

---. (215.) Wood sandpiper
