Patch-worker adrenalin

Heysham Obs
All the coverage was prior to mid-afternoon, so any late arrivals with the cloud-edge from the weather front may have been missed, but this certainly did not include any significant Meadow Pipit passage - conspicuous by its absence all day.  Must do better!

House Sparrow - one at the feeder by the office briefly - very rare in spring
Mallard - Red Nab
Great-spotted Woodpecker - female ringed 

North wall
Gannet - one
Meadow Pipit - just 16 north
Skylark - 2 north
Twite - only 18
Linnet - 4
Bar-tailed Godwit - flock of 80 north

A very thin scatter of Wheatear and a big arrival of Sand Martin this evening with 60ish at Leighton Moss (none on the equally-favoured Pine Lake last night)
