A busy night for #nocmig here in #Filey with wildfowl on the move inc Gadwall, Wigeon, Teal & Mallard, waders inc Golden Plovers, Curlew & Lapwings, plus Skylarks, Robin, Moorhen and winter thrushes: a total of 22 Song Thrushes in the last three nights alone. pic.twitter.com/FZMFRNbsYB— Mark James Pearson (@Markthebirder) February 23, 2021
An improvement in #Filey #nocmig last night with the year's first Common Sand, three flocks of Scoters, Gadwall, Redshank, Maureens, Redwing & Curlews, but amazingly the highlight was a drumming Snipe! pic.twitter.com/g3XYZVjAcL— Mark James Pearson (@Markthebirder) April 20, 2021
So, while there were relatively few nights of outstanding diversity and abundance during the spring, the two Filey recorders picked up a hugely satisfying range of species, many otheriwise unknown waves of migration, and some glittering surprises that are unlikely to be beaten anytime soon.
What a joy to again record a #nocmig Blackcap last night here in #Filey town - over an entirely urban area (three storey terraces, no gardens/vegetation), via a recorder pointed out of a second-floor window into the back alley....@simon_gillings @WillboneScott @nybirdnews pic.twitter.com/o1rtPfeFRV— Mark James Pearson (@Markthebirder) May 10, 2021
