A struggle..................

Heysham Obs
..................but there could have been a massive Willow Warbler fall at pre-rain dawn as the only coverage was over the 1000ish tide!

Red Nab/Ocean Edge/outfalls
Med Gull - just one juv with most gulls heading for wet fields on arrival
Redshank - 210
Turnstone - 59
Whimbrel - 1

A very small catch did include the first Fen Wainscot of the year

The HN reserve is really good at the moment - even though sunlight was at a premium today, in the high humidity there were loads of Common Blue, Gatekeeper, Meadow Brown, Speckled Wood, Small Skipper & single Comma & Small Copper on just a short walk

4CY Yellow-legged Gull off Fishnet Point area, Glasson along with 3 x Ad, 1 x 2CY Med Gulls at nearby Cockersands LAST night (3CY Med recently). See Fylde site for several Med records from Lune Estuary over the last week.
