Better news!

Heysham Obs
Late afternoon posting

Black Guillemot
The displaying pair were back and present in the harbour until just before 1200 whence they flew to the outer harbour where they were displaced by the 1210 IOM ferry and flew out towards the sandbank and were lost in the region of the piece of wreckage which sticks out of the water at low tide.

Two juvs were on the lower tier of the platform next to the 'waterfall' in the morning

Nothing at all on the outfalls/offshore

Middleton IE
Pair of Tufted Duck (male in eclipse)

Single windblown Emperor and 4-spotted Chaser on Middleton but temperature too low (15.5C) and wind too strong for Red-veined Darter possibilities
