The Old Lady of Middleton NR

Heysham Obs
Outfalls/Red Nab/Middleton foreshore
Med Gull - 4-5 adult, one 3CY, 3 of the adults miles away on the tideline opposite Potts Corner (seen in flight when the flock was flushed)
Little Egret - one OE saltmarsh channel
Sandwich Tern - separate adults (2) & juvenile scattered amongst the Black-h Gulls

An Old Lady came to light on Middleton NR last night during a sheet and light session (thanks John).  There was something vaguely interesting in the trap but cant remember what it was.  All will be revealed tomorrow.
