Eider fest and House Sparrow mega

Heysham Obs
North wall low tide
Eider - 302 - seen smaller flocks with kings and queens......................but all very distant.  This flock needs grilling just in case
Common Scoter - female
Red-throated Diver - 1
Auk spp - one - quite probably Razorbill

Finches included up to 5 Twite late morning

Office area
Activity round the office comprised an early Brambling and what seemed to be a small movement of about 15 southbound Chaffinch at the same time, c20 Blackbird and best of all a female House Sparrow ringed

There were no moths or even flies gracing the trap
