30 minute guillotine

Heysham Obs
North wall 0930-0945
Common Scoter - 10 very distant 'out and across'
Kittiwake - 3 in
No obvious sign of Twite
Wooden jetty not checked

Ocean Edge 0950-0955
Med Gull - adult summer roosting on the sea 'above' the saltmarsh

In the trap: Dotted Border and Twenty-plume moth - looks a bit like "Double-striped pug meets shredder"

Avocets a bit slow at the Allen/EM Pools e.g. c/p Marshside but a single there this afternoon. 2-3 on the Lune Estuary this pm (Sunderland side). Drake Scaup Glasson basin. Have the extra Waxwings 'dragged off' the resident at Leighton Drive?

This looks worth purchasing:
