Pinks but not a lot else

Heysham Obs
A funny morning with conditions much windier on the coast than for e.g. on Caton Moor. Therefore the lid was put on intended ringing other than 7 Meadow Pipit caught in the whoosh net.

Poor other than PF Geese with c20 Meadow Pipit & 4 Grey Wagtail in two hours. Pink-feet totalled 320 (4 flocks) with 'others' casually noted later on

North wall
A brief visit produced one of the 2nd W Med Gulls and a single Meadow Pipit on the mound! A single Wheatear was grounded at the Half-moon Bay end

No sign of the Rustic spp (see yesterday) and nothing new.

No sign of the Sabine's Gull today. Yellow-legged Gull still at Glasson. Great White Egret still present at the EM Pool (I think!)
