The various walls, fences and fields surrounding the local reservoirs provide a great opportunity to see some of the commoner farmland species.

During the Easter break we managed to fit in a couple of days on the east coast. Although I didn't do much birding, I did manage to sneak in a quick twitch to get the Woodchat Shrike which had been found. And a cracker it was too, just too far for any acceptable photo. All these were taken either at Scarborough, whilst flitting from Dodgems to arcades or during a quick clifftop walk at Bempton Cliffs.
