Routine fare

Heysham Obs
Two quick looks at the outfalls/Red Nab on the incoming tide and one 5 minute look from he locked gate on the north harbour wall.

Wooden jetty
One juv Shag as viewed from the gate

Ocean Edge/Red Nab/Outfalls
Little Gull - usual three
Sandwich Tern - 3
Med Gull - 2 adult

Vis from the office
Very little; 3 Grey Wagtail, 3 Collared Dove and a pair of Raven inland. There have been no semi-resident Raven so far this late summer/autumn and both recent sightings have been purposefully 'through'.

Ringing next to the office
Just the one shower dodging net for a short time produced one Chiffchaff!

2 Silver Y and Frosted Orange of note (latter scarce here)

Black-necked Grebe JUV still present Conder Pool
