Hazy juxtaposed moulting gulls

Heysham Obs
An 'awkward' morning, weather-wise; bright sunlight for the gull check therefore loads of heat haze but clouding over at optimum dragonfly time!

Red Nab/Ocean Edge foreshore
Med Gull - just the one 2CY located but difficult to observe
Common Gull - adult summer unusual at this time of year

Report out

The 2008 report is available at the office (£2) or Leighton Moss (a bit more). Essential reading for all birders interested in migration. Insect section and an article on Twite plus the "how we found" etc. on the White-throated Sparrow
