Black Tern new in

Heysham Obs
Red Nab/Ocean Edge/Outfalls
Black Tern - moulting adult on Red Nab (nearly overlooked!), then shoreline
Med Gull - just one juvenile and one adult seen

Passage 0915-0945
Swallow - 23 south
Sand Martin - 16 south

Contrasting aesthetically, but equally notable, were Dingy Shears and Bordered Beauty. First Golden Rod Pug of the autumn. Just one migrant (Silver Y).
