Swift sensation

Heysham Obs
North wall/wooden jetty
Swift 126 in-off over Heysham 2 continuing inland 1850 - 2005 hrs.
Shag juv wooden jetty
Starling c300 pre roost at Harbour
Herring gull at nest with young in Harbour on one of platforms near intake. Several on buildings around the Power Station/harbour/Middleton IE [LBBG in the majority] but ground nesting unusual. The main site (the old Pontins roof) has become unavailable so there is presumably some 'readjustment' going on on the reduced number of rooftops etc! Time to census them?

1st S Med. Gull
2 Arctic and one distant 'comic' tern

Two male and a teneral Red-veined Darter during a very brief period of sunlight at the Middleton model boat pond. Also 4 Black-tailed Skimmer.
Dragonfly sp. 'out' West over sea. Brown China Mark new for the year in the moth trap.

Back to zilch reported!
