Bonapartes Gull regularly reported and welcome Med Gull news

Heysham Obs
Bonapartes Gull being kept tabs on fairly well throughout the day but mobile between Red Nab and the seaward end of Heysham one and points in between - indeed the same pattern as most of the gulls!

Med Gull - at least 13, including a 2CY with green darvic - anyone read it, please?

The really welcome Med news was the successful return of the bird we caught along the north harbour wall this spring and attached a darvic ring (photographed two evenings ago)

Check North Lancs Ringing Group site for early March

Common Sandpiper - one nature park pond
Whimbrel - 2

The 2CY Kittiwake was present at least late afternoon
