Willow Warbler smatter

Heysham Obs
Ringed Willow Warblers just about reached double-figures, but the support act was again paltry with just a single Blackcap & Whitethroat ringed migrant-wise.  Nothing notable overhead.

Grasshopper Warbler - 1 singing by reserve entrance early.
Tufted Duck - pair on Obs Tower pond.

North harbour wall coverage similarly low-key with very poor visibility

Included Least Black Arches and Oak Tree Pug - both new for the year and both recent additions to the Heysham fauna

Roe Deer - 2 at north end of Non-Op land.
