Red kite seen at North Moor, riding the air currents on the forest edge, before unwisely drifting eastwards in the direction of a pheasant shoot … 31 January
Harlequin ladybird (alive) seen on the paving at the harbour, Scarborough South Bay, 6 February.
Weasel chasing what appeared to be a rat (possibly already injured by the weasel as it was rolling and lurching around) into the main road near the Irton/GCHQ junction on the A170. I managed to swerve to avoid them, but suspect they were hit by cars behind me. 6 February.
