Seawatching missed

Heysham Obs
No significant amounts of seawatching today which probably saved an observer or two from watching paint dry

North harbour wall/outfalls
Med Gull - two adults and a juv
Manx Shearwater - 3 out together early evening

South harbour wall
Wheatear - 1
Lapwing - increase to c50

Middleton IE
Tufted Duck family party (first breeding record for SD45E) now down to 4 young

Belgian (Ad) and Dutch (3CY)-ringed Med Gull north Morecambe along with an unringed adult. Another colour-ringed Little Egret seen at Leighton Moss - please keep checking both legs above and below the knee of any Little Egrets you come across
