Mid-May pit-stoppers, Filey

After an early start surveying in warm sunshine up in the North York Moors, a couple of hours out birding on the doorstep patch this evening, where a blustery wind made it a bit of a challenge - but there was plenty to enjoy, including the year's first Whinchat fresh-in on North Cliff, the year's first Painted Lady north along the cliffs, and a tasty little selection box of Arctic-bound shorebirds feeding on the Brigg at high tide; Turnstones and a summer-plumage Grey Plover were the photogenic highlights.
