A bit of variety!

Heysham Obs
Not up early enough this morning & I dont think there were any early morning seawatchers out.

North harbour wall/Ocean Edge/outfalls 0900-1000hrs
Common Tern - adult Red Nab
Manx Shearwater - one out close in at 0905 & 4 together distantly across the mouth at c0915 - no others in a further 45 minutes watching
Arctic Skua - Juvenile in the mouth of the bay - headed in and across towards Ulverston 0905-0915
Med Gull - 2 adults (one Ocean Edge saltmarsh), one 2CY and one juvenile
Black-tailed Godwit - at least 12

Just Agriphila latistria of note

Ringed Med
A rather unexpected reappearance in this area by a bird recorded as a juv in 2007. There is a distinct possibility that this bird has been seen in the meantime e.g. Dutch/Belgian/French coasts and any details received will be published on this site
