Greenshank top the bill

Heysham Obs
Red Nab/Ocean Edge incoming tide prior to torrential rain
Med Gull - 4 adults, two of which flew over the caravan site towards the Lune & one had a metal ring above the knee (presumed returning Czech bird which seems to favour the outfalls for a short time before settling into a north harbour wall-based routine)
Greenshank - TWO adults Ocean Edge saltmarsh channel
Redshank - 188 between Red Nab & OE saltmarsh
Whimbrel - 2

Moth trap
Highlights of a meagre catch were Barred Rivulet & Southern Wainscot
