I had a plan to catch three Yorkshire rares today and managed 2 so not too bad.
First call was the cattle egret at Tophil Low, but it didn't show despite a report of it being around the farm near the main entrance. I did manage pintail and smew at Watton as a small consolation.
Then off to Fraisthorpe for the white stork. I was very fortunate to find it after it had relocated and it only stayed put for about 5 minutes.
then off to Bempton for the desert wheatear. I was still as obliging as ever and starting to look a lot smarter than it did before Christmas.
All in all not a bad day.
