Heysham Obs
North Harbour Wall
Highlight of the day was an adult Whooper Swan which was seen on the sea in both 36V and 46A as observed from the North Harbour Wall.
A juvenile Shag spent a short time in the harbour mouth.
2 Kittiwakes flew out of the Bay, far offshore.
The usual 2 Mediterranean Gulls were seen
Two flocks of Kittiwake off JB Point late afternoon. Great White Egret Leighton Moss and best of all a Snow Bunting by the ramp at Fluke Hall (for the second day - this is just in the LDBWS recording area). NNEW on the Tatham Fells bird.
