Siberian Stonechat

Siberian Stonechat
Scalby Mills, Scarborough

After seeing Scarborough Birders News while at work all week, I finally got to Scalby Mills on Saturday morning when it was very dank and wet, to search for the Siberian Stonechat and found it along with a few other borders from Lancashire and Cheshire on the Landward side of the beck.

Though not unbelievably rare in this country a great sight for a bird that should be in Siberia Migrating to southern areas of Asia or Northern Africa.

Other notable sighting of the morning were a Ring Ouzel, a Bullfinch, Brambling, a Wren, Blue Tits, Thrushes, Blackbirds and two Heron passing over to Scalby Mills Rocks.
