Bonaparte's Gull performs well

Heysham Obs
The Bonaparte's Gull was on the seaward end of Heysham one outfall, as viewed from the north harbour wall at 0915hrs and at 1050hrs reported on the pager as 'being on the outfalls'

Afternoon update:  Bonaparte's, at least 20 Meds and ad Little Gull Heysham 2 outfall on incoming tide

Just about managed to keep the actinic upright out of the wind on the north harbour wall sandworks with one or two new species for the square including Eupoecilia angustana and a nice comparison with two Cochylis atricapitana.  Three Silver Y and a Diamond Back were the migrant interest
