Heysham Obs

What a struggle to find something worth publishing today despite a modicum of coverage of coastal sites on both sides of the harbour, plus a trip to top up the feeders

No Twite (no food left.....but rectified), no Meds (gone on recent year's form), no Purple Sandpipers (or Turnstone, yet tide well in - odd?), just 66 Wigeon left on Red Nab, no obvious early vis mig trickle, nothing offshore diver-wise, no moths

Best was two unringed Long-tailed Tits on the HNR feeder, unless you appreciate 18,000 Knot!
