Intertidal racecourse

Heysham Obs
A quick visit on the still rather neap high tide saw a racehorse being unloaded on to the beach for a bit of exercise.  This followed an earlier dobbin-like-thing creating chaos running about on the Heysham bypass.  Bird-wise between Ocean Edge and Potts Corner, limited to the Ad Med Gull and a handful of Oystercatcher (35) and Curlew (13) along the tideline

Some nice pics from yesterday - thanks Janet - including the first Narrow-bordered 5-spot Burnet Moth of the year:
