Early morning trick missed?

Heysham Obs
A cluster of 5 Chiffchaffs seen at Middleton whilst on a mist net guy replacement mission mid-afternoon hinted at what might have been missed in the dull calm conditions this early morning.  Contra several forecasts, the lack of early morning wind and rain should perhaps have been responded to with a short monitoring ringing session

Outfalls/Red Nab
Med Gull - 5 juvs, one adult, one 2CY

Included Agriphila latistria and geniculea but nothing dramatic
