We were having a picnic on Thurs 23rd just outside Scarborough on site of Holgate Hall Hotel (the one that fell into the sea), when we spotted a huge and I mean HUGE seabird coming onshore from the direction of the harbour. It was dark on the underside of the very long thin wings. We stood mesmerised as it moved like a glider and disappeared over the trees. I was so blessed to have spotted, what I read last night, turns out to have been the black browned albatross spotted at Bempton. Amazing!!!
