Black Rabbit pulled from toilet wall!

Heysham Obs
New for the reserve and second record for SD45 was the oddly named "Black Rabbit Moth", Ypsolopha sequella.

From the same family, Ypsolopha scabrella was the 3rd reserve record.
The rather local "grass moths" Agriphila latistria and Agriphila geniculea continued to perform.
Treble Bar, thin on the ground earlier this year, made a welcome reappearance with two fresh second brood specimens

Ocean Edge foreshore & north harbour wall late afternoon
Med Gull - 2 x Ad, 1 x juv Red Nab, ad north harbour wall
Black-tailed Godwit - 2

Black tern - juvenile off north harbour wall heading towards outfalls (near HT)

Shag - juvenile by wooden jetty - first of autumn
