No passerine coverage overhead or around reserve area

Heysham Obs
'Title' altered from 'dead' based on Walney and other sightings - a (by recent standards) decent morning was unfortunately missed by all accounts. Coverage of the outfalls and harbour area just produced the routine Ad & 2nd W Med Gulls on the north wall. The outfalls were birdless on the dropping tide

A duck described over the phone whilst in Cheshire superficially resembling eclipse male Garganey on Middleton will hopefully be sorted tomorrow - it may be an escaped hybrid. Sorted out by Malcolm in the evening - a female Wood Duck. Thanks Malcolm.

Great White Egret Eric Morecambe pool - excellent pictures from Cliff Raby on LDBWS site. Also one Curlew Sandpiper
