Meagre murk

Heysham Obs
Overcast and drizzly conditions did not produce the expected Wheatear but a singing Chiffchaff was making its way along Moneyclose Lane, providing a rather belated first

North harbour wall
Twite - no food, but 6 appeared as soon as some was put down (1 unringed)
Purple Sandpiper - one at the base of the seawall at the harbour mouth - flew over to wooden jetty

Ocean Edge
Meadow Pipit - one north!

Moneyclose Lane
Chiffchaff - singing male (on the move)

Most numerate catch so far this year of the most predictable fare: 4 Common Quaker, 6 Hebrew Character, 5 Clouded Drab, 3 March Moth
