Filey Brigg 2008


Meadow Pipit





Common Scoter

First trip of the year to Filey Brigg on a cold cloudy day to try and see the Great Northern Diver which has been present for the last few days. As I parked the car on the Country Park a pair of Stonechats were flying along the fence next to the car park. As I got on to the Brigg a couple of female Common Scoters were in the bay but keeping there distance.
Wader numbers were low but still I managed to see Sanderling, Dunlin, Turnstone, Redshank, Curlew, Oystercatcher, Knot and Purple Sandpiper. Unfortunately no sign of the Great Northern Diver, will try again soon.
