Courageous Coot

Heysham Obs
per Ocean Edge resident
The pair of Coot are trying to nest on the dog-walk-please-dont-let them-swim-in-it pond, after being present for about a week.  This is the first record of Coot for the BE properties, apart from a electricity wires casualty about 15 years ago!  They are, of course, resident on nearby Middleton NR

Also in this pond are 'several' Goldfish which are being targeted by a Grey Heron!

Ocean Edge foreshore
Whimbrel - 1
Common Sandpiper - late passage bird

To those of you with the site access details, please keep the site going whilst I am away, even if just a few moth records!  Thanks.
