North Cave Wetlands – 26/11/2017

A cold but clear morning, temperatures in low single figures with a gentle westerly breeze. A fairly quiet day at the wetlands, the highlight being the two juvenile Scaup Aythya marila on Island Lake. A single Ruff Philomachus pugnax was on Dryham Ings Cell A, whilst a Dunlin Calidris alpina was on the Silt Lagoon. A Pair of Bullfinch Pyrrhula pyrrhula showed well along the lane opposite Crosslands Hide.
