Good numbers of twite

Heysham Obs

Twite - a good count of 76 with at least 16 unringed, possibly many more, but flew off to the back of the sandworks before I could go through them all
Med Gull - one adult late pm

Heysham nature reserve
Brambling - at least three, possibly all five finches which flew off high to the south whilst 'topping up' were this species & no other calls heard

Ocean Edge south shore
Tide not far enough in for Jack Snipe
Ringed Plover - 22
Grey Plover - 7
Teal - male
