No pipits - still 'need' Rock Pipit for year in recording area

Other coastal sightings
Dark-bellied Brent Goose - flock of four, first seen at 1020 from NHW flying round the wooden jetty, then around Red Nab, then flying towards Potts Corner before returning to Red Nab and joining the Wigeon flock
Med Gull - presumably the Czech bird on Fisher's roof - starting to come into summer plumage if it was that bird
Wigeon - 120
