The approach to Top Hill Low holds several Oilseed rape fields at their brightest yellow hue and star bird today was a good number of Yellow Wagtails on the wall of the 'O' reservoir the male just as yellow as that oilseed rape.
Other birds for the year today were Swift, Sedge Warbler, Common Tern and Common Sandpiper.
Earlier we visited Filey Dams but no sighting of Wood Sandpipers where 4 were yesterday on East Lea, part of the reserve only available to Filey Ornithological Group members. Then to Bempton but the Wryneck seen yesterday apparently disappeared off the reserve early in the evening, so still a bird we have yet to see.
The Yellow Wagtails were crackers.
