Land, sea and air blockade

Heysham Obs
Absolutely nothing happened this morning in the continuing hopeless migrant synopsis other than the possible passage status of two Rock Pipit!

North harbour wall
Twite - 85, including the usual Machrihanish bird, just one-two  unringed
Linnet - two by heliport
Rock Pipit - either one very fast flyer (c30mph and beating the car) or one by the twite feeder and one on the near naze
Red-throated Diver - a singleton blogging was the only bird seen offshore on the incoming tide - really bad!

Heysham NR
Despite plenty of opportunity to connect, not a single bird in the 'vis' category headed overhead during the morning
