It's a vulture!

According to our local paper (The Whitby Gazette) an African white-backed vulture has been sighted in the area but unfortunately not by the CJS staff. It was first seen in Robin Hood's Bay just down the coast from us and then more recently in Grosmont, the next village down the valley from us, less than a mile away.
