Another blank

Heysham Obs
No visits made to the office by the people who would usually update this site (flu (4th day) & work absence) so late postings possible tomorrow

Please note that the neighbouring Stone Jetty now has a sightings logbook in the cafe in recognition of that dangerous combination, as regards records being 'lost', of a good number of casual short-stay visitors of both the people and birding kind. Please include any Heysham sightings therein if it is more convenient

A very high number, described as circa TWENTY, presumed littoralis Rock Pipit attracted by a tape at very high tide at Aldcliffe Lane Ends. Mainly rather unobtrusive on floating flotsam. Spot Red & Greenshank Conder, 2 Bewick's Swan Jeremy Lane plus two Stonechat at Fluke Hall which may be early migrants
