New arrivals on the 19th were the first Green Sandpiper of the year on the scrape at Kirbest, a Long Eared Owl at Newbiggin and 2 Lapland Buntings. The Tree Sparrow was seen again and a few more Skylarks seem to have arrived with 75 counted. On 20th a Whimbrel and a House Martin were both new for the year and only the second Iceland Gull of 2013 flew past the Observatory in the evening, 4 Black-tailed Godwits were also seen as were 6 Swallows, a Tree Pipit and a few each of Goldcrest and Chiffchaff.
