TWO Black Guillemot!

Heysham Obs
........and we havent checked that area for three days.

Coastal areas
Black Guillemot - male trying to call a second bird of unknown sex, but almost certainly an adult, on to the 'nest' site on the wooden jetty
Med Gull - probably the same three 2CY as yesterday plus what appeared to be an additional bird. Also adult in the afternoon
Little Gull - 2CY
Common Tern - 2-3

A Mother Shipton twitcher finally found one after a few hours in breezy cool conditions (northern end of nature reserve)!

Red Kite over Dolphinholme area heading for Harris End Fell mid morning. Uncertain whether same bird as in Roeburndale East as upperwings, therefore wing-tag presence, not discernable. Temminck's Stint and mobile Pectoral Sandpiper on the Eric Morecambe Pool this late afternoon/evening
