Baseline birding

Heysham Obs
Always good to start off with zero or nearly zero at the beginning of an assumed build-up of post breeding season gulls - it gives a sense of coverage completeness.  Was half-expecting the first 'autumnal' Med at high tide this morning.  In the event, a scrutiny of Ocean Edge foreshore and Red Nab produced:

Canada Goose - 2
Black-headed Gull - 1
Common Gull - 2
Oystercatcher - 154
plus large gulls

Lesser Whitethroat singing at Ocean Edge entrance
