Heysham outfalls & Red Nab

Heysham Obs
Mediterranean gull 2 1st S (both had full tail bars, different to 1st S on the 2/6)
Kittiwake adult
Arctic tern 2
Red-brested merganser female
Ringed plover 3 Red Nab + 1 non-op land & 1 on Helipad
Black-headed gull juv still present

A good little trip to Fair Isle took a new dimension today with a big 'wow' factor as a glance at a Purple Sand on the tideline revealed a bobbing tail on a nearby bird otherwise rather well-camouflaged against the shingle beach.........a TEREK! Usual headless chicken response helped when the first person encountered said 'shall I phone the obs' in a manner suggesting a regular routine! Orange mobiles dont work here.
