Sandwich terns increasing

Heysham Obs
Wooden jetty/seawatching
30 minutes on the NHW produced 6 Manx Shearwater, one juv Common Tern and 6 Sandwich Tern out

Black Guillemot - both sat together on the wooden jetty. No obvious sign of any Shag.

Outfalls/Red Nab
No Meds! 7 Sandwich Tern roosting on the rocks (definitely additional to the seawatch birds) and four Whimbrel present

Lesser Yellowlegs available on the Leighton Moss public mere from at least 0900 to at least 1030. Seen later on Allen Pool before flying towards JBP, thence a belated report of a 1525 sighting at JBP before 'flying towards the breakwater'. EM Pools: Little Egret flock rising to 11, three Spoonbill still present and a single Avocet reported.
