The sea was very flat, with almost no wind today and high tide. I had only been to Filey once before and it was nice to be back, right on migration season. By the campsite, on the Sycomores we heard a call reminiscent of coal tit that happened to be a Yellow Browed warbler. It didn't exposed itself very well, so I ended up having a lifer without seeing it's head. Insects were aplenty by the line of trees, including several Red Admirals and many hoverflies. On the pond a Dunlin fed with some Linnets. We walked atop the north facing clifs and spotted a Wheatear.
The birds were aplenty by the Brigg. A group of six Common Scoter not too far offshore, Cormorants, Sandwich Terns, Shags, various gulls, a flock of snoozing Knot, Dunlin, Purple Sandpiper, Oystercatcher and while having lunch, a surprise in the form of a Kingfisher. The nicest thing about Filey is that you don't really need a telescope to see the birds!
