With travel limitations relaxed and Brown shrike at flamborough yesterday,l I decided to book a day off work and give it a shot. The second year in a row I've dipped this species now :(

Flamborough

184. Lesser whitethroat

Harwood dale

185. Turtle dove

Dipped tree pipit in a couple of normally reliable spots before turning attention to butterflies which I started in summer last year adding a couple more lifers:

Duke of Burgundy and Pearl bordered fritillary

Thorne moor

188. Red footed falcon (1st UK)
189. Hobby

Great start to the day, I had planned to move on to North cave for Temminck's stint but no report today so headed out to spurn for the first time this year. Pretty quiet in terms of birds and birders but full of day trippers.

190. (Dark bellied) Brent goose
191. Whimbrel
192. Little tern

Managed to add Marsh fritillary to my growing butterfly list but with intermittent rain and strong wind, other butterfly plans were abandoned.

Instead:

Abbey brook

Nice views of the bird perched early morning, then went back later in the day and watched in flight dwarfing a mobbing buzzard. Going on my list irrespective of anyones decisions regarding category.

208. Lammergeier

Frampton

209. Caspian tern
210. Little stint
211. Wood sandpiper
212. Green sandpiper

Spent a big chunk of afternoon chasing rumours of the Pectoral sandpiper which was definitely present the previous evening but having had someone mis-ID common sandpiper as it and ruff as greenshank, I was pretty cynical regarding the reports going round and if the bird really was there today, was very elusive.

In between times, also managed a couple of birding year ticks.
