Carlton Marsh

This morning several hundred B.H. Gulls were following the plough along with c30 Pied Wagtails and 20 Starlings. An adult Herring Gull wearing a yellow Darvic ring may have been from the Harewood Whin, Rufforth landfill site, to the west of York, as up to 3,000 were colour ringed there from 2015.
A Buzzard flushed c100 Skylarks and  a large group of finches thought to be linnets and a Grey Partridge called (JP).

This afternoon a Little Egret left the wader scrape south at 15.50hrs, a Tawny Owl called at dusk and a Snipe left to feed just after dark (Dave Standish).

Cudworth Common
12 Siskin, a singing Mistle Thrush, 15 Fieldfares and 10 Redwings.
