Quick (but legal!) run round

Heysham Obs
Having wasted a lot of time dealing with a hire car speeding offence which placed me in Nottingham when I was in High Tatham, not much time for birding or indeed 'work work' & dont think anyone else on the prowl today.

North harbour wall high tide
Med Gull - adult on the corrugated roof on the old Fisher's building. NB. due to sand removal, you can see this roof now from your car around the sandworks gate area and also just about see around the waterfall area
Twite - 13 around the feeder
Purple Sandpiper - at least one at long-range on the lower tier of the wooden jetty

South side (high tide)
Ringed Plover - 7 on OE west field

One Dotted Border in the trap
