Hormonal Twite

Heysham Obs
The temperature on the north harbour wall was a balmy 8.5 degrees C and the Twite were full of the 'joys' of spring. This included bickering and posturing over the food and a lot more racket than usual, including bursts of song

North harbour wall
Twite - 41, including 5 unringed birds
Med Gull - adult
Red-throated Diver - one offshore on the incoming tide

4 Barnacle Geese & hybrid plus indeterminate brief views of what might have been the Tundra Bean Goose along Heysham bypass but birds disturbed by shooting
