A bit of biodiversity for a change?

Heysham Obs
Routine at the harbour/north wall with Ad and 1st W Med Gull and at last 5 Shag

Peacock butterfly along the "dog walk/landscape strip" running from the nature reserve to Red Nab. Also a bumble bee spp, presumably Bombus terrestris

Green Sandpiper appearing at Aldcliffe from an unknown winter bolt-hole. 2 Spotted Redshank and 2 Greenshank at Conder and male/female Scaup on Glasson Marina
A queen Red-tailed Bumble bee was just outside the LDBWS recording area (but in the NLN recording area of SD47) at the Netherwood Hotel at Grange this afternoon along with a Hawfinch. Dotted Border moth on my outside window at High Tatham as I type this. Ad Med Gull with large gull flock between Burrow and A65/A683 junction early afternoon
