Too busy for birding

Heysham Obs
A vehicular saunter down the north harbour wall produced both the adult and 1st W Med Gulls and there were at least 5 Shag and 2 Kittiwake in the harbour. Outfalls not checked.

The main news was the continued presence of the 1st W Purple Sandpiper, both feeding at the end of the Stone Jetty and roosti9ng on the groyne by the car park. There were at least 40 Black-tailed Godwit (unexpected) and a drake & 2 female Scaup (expected) close inshore between the Battery and Golf club as seen from a moving car late afternoon. Nothing new on Pine Lake.
