Mediterranean jelly

Heysham Obs
Ocean Edge/outfalls
After the lowest post-sunset temperatures I can remember in June - 1.5 C at Botton Head/Cross of Greet as early as 2215hrs -  the morning check of the outfalls was ironically greeted by the worst heat haze for some time.  A flight view finally confirmed that a 'wobbling' 2CY Med Gull was along the tideline.  Nothing else of note

Amazing there were any - just TWO in the usually superb Millhouses trap last night - but the only mild surprise was an unseasonal Common Marbled Carpet
