The miracle of Red Nab

Heysham Obs
Amazingly Red Nab was untouched by human or canine hand on the latter stages of the incoming tide

Red Nab/Ocean Edge/outfalls
Med Gull - 3 separate juvs (at least 2 unringed), 2 adults
Black-tailed Godwit - 24
Whimbrel - 2

Too clear and breezy, followed by fast moving cumulus from the SW, from an early stage this morning as the forecasted Atlantic weather seems to be starting to run ahead of predictions. Just a handful of birds caught including Lesser Whitethroat & the only overhead movement involved 3 Swift and 6 Swallow

3 Red Admiral, 9 Painted Lady, 3 Peacock, 2 Small Tortoiseshell HNR office buddliea. Grayling Ocean Edge foreshore
