UPDATES & SUMMARY.

Tuesday 20th June.

The 170th species for the year a Yellow Legged Gull was found on the Lagoon islands this morning by PRM, the only other lister i know of at the moment who saw this species is JB it takes his total to 154.

Sunday 18th June.

It’s that time of year with very little activity so nothing much to report, the only update is from DM who added Grasshopper Warbler onto his list taking him onto 134.

Tuesday 13th June.

An alert received from Fairburn early morning that a Little Tern was heading our way paid dividends for PRM who was the only lister to see this bird on Astley before it flew of West, this takes the year total to 169 and the finders to 163.

Monday 12th June.

Still fairly quiet on site so just three updates received, REL added the Quail and a Hobby taking his total to 159. GYL added Hobby which takes him onto 153. RM has added six species on his last two visits taking his total to 121.

Thursday 8th June.

Several updates received, PRM, JB, DAH, have all added the Quail. DAH has also added Hobby taking him onto 155. GR is now on 151 with the addition of Hobby, Cuckoo and Garganey.  JP added Garganey taking him onto 146.

Sunday 4th June.

At last a new bird for the year a Quail was heard calling on the hillside late morning then later seen briefly in flight, several listers heard the bird thus adding it onto their lists, JP, RDH, DIH, GYL, AR, JMS. At the time of posting these are the only listers i know of who heard or saw the bird, will update accordingly when more information is received. This takes the year total to 168.

Saturday 3rd June.

Species seen table updated with latest updates received.

Wednesday 31st May.

A poor end to the second part of the Month with no new species recorded since the Spotted Flycatcher on the 14th May, only six new species for the year were recorded this month leaving the year list on 167. Just two updates received since the last post, JMS added a Hobby taking him onto 154. DM added Black Tern & Little Gull taking him onto 133.

Wednesday 24th May.

Just four updates received from the last few days, PRM has increased his total with a Hobby taking him onto 161. JDM, RDH, PGC all added one species onto their lists, see table above for their latest totals. Still very quiet on site at the moment with no new species recorded since the 14th May.

Sunday 21st May.

Still very quiet this weekend on site with just a Grey Plover a few Turnstones and Sanderlings present being the highlights. Just two updates received, REL finally added Bearded Tit onto his list taking him onto 157. RDH added Sanderling taking him onto 150, good effort from a full time worker. One omission was Garganey from JBs list, with this addition he is now on 152.

Friday 19th May.

Very quiet at the moment so sorry for lack of posts this week, just three updates received, DM added three more species taking him onto 131. GYL & DAH both added Bearded Tit today. Surprised there has been no further sightings of the Spotted Flycatcher since Sunday as far as i’m aware, it’s probably down to the weather or the bird was just passing through or located to a different area.

Monday 15th May.

The Species seen list has been updated with the latest information received, (see below). Sanderling, Osprey, Spotted Redshank, Ring Ouzel, Spotted Flycatcher & Redstart are new birds for May.  The Redstart reported by a visitor was accepted by the Rarities committee on a Majority decision.  The Spoonbill returned in May after a brief visit in April allowing all the listers the chance of adding this species onto their lists. No updates received today at time of posting.

Sunday 14th May.

Spotted Flycatcher in Temple Newsam this afternoon was new for the year, it was found by DIH, at time of posting i have no further news if any other lister saw the bird. RDH added Turnstone today taking his total to 150. Otherwise a fairly quiet weekend.(((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((((.

Saturday 31st December.

One last update, PRM with the last tick of 2016 added a Barn Owl taking his total to 160.

There was no last minute additions by the top two, with both of them still on site as the last light of 2016 finally faded away so both DIH & GYL finish level on 166 species seen for the year, Congratulations .

So we all begin again tomorrow lets hope for a Bird filled year with a few more rarities. Here are a few of the birds that have been recorded in recent years but were missing from this years list :-  Ruddy Duck, Red Crested Pochard, Smew, Ring Ouzel, Redstart, Quail, Waxwing, Mealy Redpoll, Spoonbill. For more omissions see Previous Years Sightings Page.

Happy New Year.

It’s getting to that time of the year in deciding if we are carrying on next year with the Swilly listers patch challenge or has it run it’s course and needs retiring ? Please let me know your thoughts, I’m happy to carry on with this blog maybe in a different format but if anyone wants to take over I would be happy to step aside. Sorry for all the incorrect punctuation marks spelling mistakes and bad English at times over the last few years. That reminds me am i proof reading the report again for next year ?
