A very peaceful afternoon at the coast after a wet morning, was spent watching displaying Ravens in an area where hopefully they will breed once again. Ravens are much maligned and persecuted member of the Corvid family and is a bird you will generally hear long before you see. Ravens have not nested on the Yorkshire Coast since the 1860’s so it is hoped that this pair will successfully breed in the area.
The Birds are wonderful fliers and masters of the air and to watch these return was a pleasure. Also in the vicinity were 10 Purple Sandpiper and 80 Pink Feet flying back North.
A stop off at Hackness Lake produced 2 Mandarin Ducks, 2 Little Grebes and 4 Tufted Ducks.
