A few routine observations

Heysham Obs
Most people otherwise occupied today - in my case one for the cricket buffs talking to ex-England/Derbyshire bowler Harold Rhodes about 20:20 cricket and nesting Spoonbills - another person who has been in the public domain who has taken up quite serious birding in later life.  This was at the funeral of a lifetime friend of my parents (posted by Pete Marsh).

Janet spent some time photographing birds around the Red Nab area and here is a female/juvenile Chaffinch

Thanks Janet

The moth trap was not checked until 1030 and held nothing memorable other than perhaps Red-barred Tortrix (per John)
