Craig Martin?

I got the news that the Crag Martin had disappeared from Flamborough when I was about 10 mins from Scarborough. I pressed on in the hope it would be re-found, but when I arrived on site there were frowns all round as people trudged back to their cars. My own fault, I should have gone when the news broke instead of waited to see if it would hang around. He who hesitates...

On a brighter note, a Tawny Pipit had been found half an hour before I got there. Although it had moved by the time I got there I managed to get reasonable views a few hundred yards south of the light house. My third lifer of the year, but I've got to admit I would have preferred the Martin. Or both!
