Spurn area and Donisthorpe/Oakthorpe

A fairly lively seawatch at Spurn featured an in-off Short-eared Owl, six Sooty Shearwaters, five Manx Shearwaters, five Bonxies, two Arctic Skuas, a good few Guillemots and Razorbills, a couple of Kittiwakes, two Arctic Terns and many Red-throated Divers and Gannets.

On the way home, we broke up the journey by stopping off at the nature trail between Donisthorpe and Oakthorpe, getting brief views of the Glossy Ibis there before it flew off. Also there were five Teal and the nearby fields had a few Red-legged Partridges.
