Second record of Buff Footman

Heysham Obs
Wooden jetty/harbour
Reasonably good search of the harbour area failed to reveal any Shag but the 2 Black Guillemot were by the wooden jetty

Checked rather too late i.e high tide. Two juvenile and a 1st summer Med Gull were sat on the sea but no sign of any Little Gull

30-40 Swift over Middleton IE. Scattering of presumed migrant Willow Warbler and Whitethroat

A female Buff Footman was eventually identified - the second record -pic tomorrow.

The three Spoonbill and 12-14 Little Egret still at Leighton Moss
