Bits and bobs

Heysham Obs
Two Black Guillemot still in the harbour entrance in the morning. Thanks Eric. Juv Shag on the wooden jetty

Early dropping tide saw just the 1st S Kittiwake

A trap set in the reedbed produced 6 Southern Wainscot and the pyralid Chilo phragmitella. A couple of Silver Y have featured on the last two nights, otherwise a complete contrast (so far) to last year's migrant moth bonanza

A Pectoral Sandpiper was located on the Allen Pool late afternoon and at least one Spoonbill was 'around' the LM reserve complex. Yellow-legged Gull still on the Lune off Glasson (then flew downstream) also a 1st S Med Gull. Single Spotted Redshank and Greenshank at Conder Green
