Bits and bobs on or over the sea

Heysham Obs
Yesterday's Twite moved on as has been a feature this autumn so far - presumably an excellent supply of samphire on the saltmarsh edges.  Ian's coverage of the sea for an hour produced:

Whooper Swan - 2 north
Guillemot - 3
Goldeneye - male north with Whoopers!
Red-throated Diver - 2

Med Gull - two adults on the north wall railings
Grey Wagtail - single by outfalls

Single female December Moth, Mottled Umber and Feathered Thorn
