Snow in the air but not on the ground at Heysham this morning.
North Harbour Wall
The strong easterly wind had caused a few drifts of nyger seed in the gully between Centrica and the sandplant so the 67 Twite were a little bit spread out. One Twite sported a racing red ring, presumably one of the Machrahanish birds. Only one unringed bird seen. Robin and 2 Linnets.
The new interpretation boards have gone up. They look pretty smart!
