Gulls and LRP flock!

Heysham Obs
Absolute rubbish light at the evening high tide but still managed to locate 4 Meds and a Little Gull.  Could have been a lot more

Outfalls/Red Nab/Ocean Edge foreshore
Med Gull - adult, 2 x 2CY and juvenile - one of the 2CY had a metal ring above the tarsus on the right leg
Little Gull - 2CY but very mobile and unsettled and seen to fly around the end of the wooden jetty
Kittiwake - At least one 2CY

Middleton NR
Little Ringed Plover - 3 adults and 2 juvs, presumably on the model boat pond

Highlighted by Shaded Pug and Double Dart, neither of which are a big deal here but certainly are anywhere else in NW England
