Wimpish early morning coverage

Heysham Obs
Early morning Vis Mig day two was subject to cancellation as the rain was too horizontal.   All that was seen by early-morning car-bound observers was "at least four" 1CY Kittiwake on Heysham 2 outfalls and one of the ad Med Gulls

outfalls area incoming tide
Kittiwake - 5 1CY
Common Tern - one juv

Middleton IE
c300 Goldfinch!
probable Ruddy Darter western marsh, but no optics with me at the time & couldnt be absolutely certain, given current status
Wall brown - single near the model boat pond

First Pink-barred Sallow of the autumn - the first truly autumnal moth to go with the weather!
