Flying visit

Heysham Obs
The third "restructuring" of the Orange mobile mast in as many months has led to the office being out of mobile range, therefore not an ideal workplace at the moment. So finished the WeBS, checked the north wall, printed the LDBWS Newsletters and away.

North harbour wall/harbour
Mixed finch flock comprising approximately 19 Twite and 2 Linnet, later fragmenting and possibly gathering "some more" Linnet. At least one of the Twite was ringed with a yellow c.r.
Med Gull: Ad and 2nd W on the railings
Shag: Three juv by the waterfall area near HT - acting as 2+1.

Mottled Umber

Pale-bellied Brent Goose still by the Battery groyne. Ad Spotted Redshank still on the Strathmore groyne. Polish-ringed Med Gull still on Lancaster City Football ground
