Paint-drying sea & a few waders

Heysham Obs
The sea produced zero as far as I am aware unless the odd passing Shelduck counts as a 'sighting'

Ocean Edge
Grey Plover - 22
Dunlin - 18
Whimbrel - 4
Curlew - 64
Oystercatcher - 98
Bar-tailed Godwit - 1
Common Sandpiper - 1 (Red Nab)

Virtually no gulls on the incoming tide - all the Common Gulls seem to have dispersed with the PS outfalls producing little or no food.

This morning's weather-watch produced a unique combination of serious windscreen frost clearance and -2C to the accompaniment of singing Garden Warbler (scarce at High Tatham) and over-flying Swift

Still no moths in the hut trap
