High tide, jetskis and holidaymakers having a good time

Heysham Obs
Ocean Edge/Red Nab etc
Med Gull - juv on the sea was the only notable bird on a visit which was a little too late with very little of Red Nab uncovered

Half Moon Bay woodland
Perhaps the same Jay party as recorded recently on Moneyclose Lane were seen this morning (3 young or 4 young in a single parent family!)

A Red Underwing was disturbed during the butterfly transect, unfortunately in SD45E where already recorded (once) in the moth trap this year. Butterflies on the HNR transect highlighted by 6 Brimstone, 6 Gatekeeper still, 5 Small Copper and 4 Small Tortoiseshell on the fleabane in the NE corner. Two Common, single Migrant and Brown Hawkers seen on transect route

Nothing yet of note
