Good news

North Harbour Wall to Half Moon Bay
The good news is that 2 of the 3 Ringed Plover chicks have survived and are now well grown with 2 males and a female looking out for them.
60-70 Oystercatcher still hanging around (mostly first summers).
7 Mute Swans flew in on an awayday to Heysham then flew off back to the north side of the Bay.
Whitethroat still singing near the Zoo cafe.

Not so much “news” as an observation:
The rain front mid evening brought an influx of swifts that joined those routinely feeding high above Heysham Head.
The insects and therefore the birds were much lower than normal. Over 50 counted above Half Moon Bay meadow at 7:00pm
