Flamborough (England)

Flamborough Head is the newest accredited bird observatory, increasing the observatory network to 19. It is probably best known to birdwatchers for its seawatching, not surprising when the head juts several miles out into the North Sea.
The best time for seawatching is from July-December. Large numbers of Sooty Shearwaters, Gannets, Fulmar and Common Scoter and good numbers of divers, skuas, terns and Little Auks can be seen given the right wind direction. Flamborough gets a good range of less commonly seen birds such as Cory's and Great Shearwaters, Long-tailed Skua, Sabine's Gull and Roseate Tern. A wide variety of ducks and waders can also be seen during seawatches.
Autumn is also when large falls of land migrants are possible, particularly thrushes. Unusual birds at this time can include Dusky, Barred, Yellow-browed and Pallas's Warbler, Red-breasted Flycatcher, Red-backed and Great Grey Shrike and Lapland Bunting.
