Some early morning overhead stuff mainly involving Mipits and Yellow Wags. A flock of 120 House Martins south was note worthy with around 200 south in 30 mins but then fizzling out.
Also a steady movement of Red Admirals south and the first Clouded Yellow

Things a bit quiet really so had to resort to some seawatching. This turned out to be pretty productive with a Sabines Gull, 7 Balearics, and 3 Arctic Skuas past.
After leaving some rather upset people on the veranda who didnt get onto the Sabines in time stopped off at Ferrybridge where there were 4 juv Little Stints

And a Dunlin

Couple of intermedius LBBG out on the mud
