Moths and gulls plus a tern and Manx

Heysham Obs
Red Nab/outfalls/Ocean Edge 0745-0815
Unfortunately the big gull flock was sent in the direction of Pott's Corner by a dog and 2CY Meds may have been missed

Med Gull - 2 x ad & 1 x 2CY
Little Gull - adult summer Red Nab
Sandwich tern - adult Red Nab
Whimbrel - one
Curlew - 187
Grey Plover - 44
Redshank - 210
Manx Shearwater - one distantly offshore flying out

Another rather large 220+ catch with minor highlights including singles of White Satin, Double Dart, Dingy Footman, Garden Carpet (!), 3 Blackneck, but more especially the occurrence of both Small Fan-foot and The Fan-foot on the same night - neither regular here
