Even worse...........

Heysham Obs
This must be the least productive day at theoretical migration time ever experienced in north Lancashire..........................but what a result at Wembley where at least one local patch birder was celebrating! Congratulations to Morecambe.

Seawatching of sorts 0630-0930ish
Shag - one around
Arctic Tern - 6 on Heysham one outfall

Not a thing moving offshore but was anyone watching in the Walney direction at 0900ish? (Spoonbill circling the Obs)

A very early immature male Emperor dragonfly seen on the 'dog-walk' (Landscape strip) pond

Two Spoonbill still at Leighton Moss (per pager). Male and Female Cuckoo seen/heard upper Hindburndale this evening - they have been scarce this year so far. Absolute zilch recorded on JBP seawatches today, reflecting the earlier complete dearth at Heysham.
