No birds or big cats in the wrong kind of wet weather

Heysham Obs
A gang of four ducks on Middleton 'fence' pond first casually noticed just prior to racing round and putting the CES nets up yesterday morning were sorted out later as 3/4 sized juvenile Gadwall - surely, in conjunction with regular adult sightings, proof of breeding in SD45.  Thanks Mark

Better wind direction tomorrow on the earlyish morning tide for a seabird or two

Ocean Edge/Red Nab
Once again an intruder flushed all the gulls from Red Nab on the early morning tide and they were vefry unhelpfully rear-on miles away towards Potts Corner.  Just 4 juv and one adult Med located
Waders as per yesterday other than increase in Knot (at least 150) and Dunlin (c200)

Agriphila latistria best of the small catch
