Pale Brindled Beauty

Heysham Obs
A creepy-crawly in pole position (so far) today with a single Pale-brindled Beauty moth in the toilet MV trap.  This was my 20th of the morning (19 at an oak woodland overnight MV trap), but it is rare here with about 12 previous records going back to 1989

Ocean Edge foreshore paper read
Black-tailed Godwit - 5
Rock Pipit - one by the saltmarsh

North harbour wall mid-pm
Purple Sandpiper - at least one in foul conditions on rocks by south harbour
Hyperactive spaniel around the Twite area
Lesser Black-backed Gull - increase e.g. 24 on the shore by north wall
No sign of any Meds for second day running
