Flying belated visit

Heysham Obs
A fascinating but late night listening to a very informed discussion in the Bridge Inn between Jim Bowen & half a dozen locals on music and old shows led to a bleary mid-morning emergence [I do work w/es so take the odd weekday 'off'!].

North harbour wall
Med Gull - just one adult seen
Twite - 19 on seed, others heard
Purple Sandpiper - one visible in short scan
Quick scan offshore revealed zero

Observer: Pete Marsh

4 European White-fronted Geese showing well on the Lune floodplain with Greylags just north of Bull Beck car park (& 1+ Pink-footed Goose). No obvious sign of the Black Redstart at Glasson.
