There is stuff out there..................

Heysham Obs
Really wild and woolly this morning, but without the rain.  The sea was covered for about half an hour after an instant result with a flock of Kittiwake

North wall 1000-1030ish, then 1300-1330hrs
Twite - 35-37
Kittiwake - flock of 42-44 in, then landed on sea and 'invisible', 11+17 out mid-afternoon
Little Gull - perhaps the same adult seen from OE side and later in harbour mouth briefly, then later presumably the same feeding in the surf by Half-moon Bay

Another good catch in the sheltered Millhouses trap included the first Ypsolopha ustella and Tortricodes alternella of the year.  Nothing in the obs trap!
