Pinkfeet with two agendas and Cettis warbler obliging

Heysham Obs
Interesting early morning - so much for the dawn start of work!

Cetti's Warbler
Calling a lot and showing well from the boardwalk below the classroom - now it is in this area, this is a very 'user-friendly' bird despite not being a singing male (call similar to quiet Great-spotted Woodpecker 'chit')

Red-throated Diver - two offshore but very distant

Eider - c300 offshore

Pink-footed Goose
Absolute minimum of 2,100 heading distantly over the golf course towards fields to the north of Heysham Moss - whether any carried on is unknown but.............

450 + 71 + 390 definitely north-west over the office heading across the bay on the usual migratory route

Single Dotted Border and rather late Dark Chestnut in hut trap
