Robin Hood’s Bay correspondent Ian Hudson snapped this image of a visitor to our shores that is normally more comfortable in cooler climes.
Measuring at just 5.75 inches long, this brambling is usually a winter visitor, but decided to stick around to enjoy some sunshine.
Meanwhile, on 25 May birdwatcher Martin Lynn spotted a Golden Oriole on a clifftop location between Kettleness and Runswick Bay.
He said this species of bird is “very rarely seen around here, but was unmistakable.”
