Little reward, lot of effort

Heysham Obs
Mist-netting at Middleton and Heysham
Rogue shower(s) seriously affected play at Middleton this morning whilst amazingly avoiding Heysham NR.  Very little around with the 'highlights' being an out of habitat juv Reed Warbler by Heysham NR office and a smattering of both Whitethroat species.  Willow Warblers were conspicuous by their absence at both sites

No time to look at the sea. 

Mothing was a disaster with the HNR moth trap bulb giving up the ghost during the night...........and missing out on a new moth species having "farmed out" my usual trap check at Millhouses in favour of an early start at Heysham - the first VC60 Beautiful HOOK TIP (not Snout as originally posted)
