Low-key May continues

Heysham Obs
Struggling with any semblance of proper coverage so far this month - at least the forecasted weather this week points towards just one thing - seawatching - instead of making the wrong early morning decision during 'not quite right' easterlies, as has been the case on two occasions recently based on events nearby.

Sea intermittently mid-morning
Sandwich Tern - 3
Arctic Skua - dark morph out
Swallow - c20/hr north
Swift - one north (IOY)

Little Egret - one Red Nab - why are there so many hanging around the Lune Estuary and up to here?
Wheatear - 13 Ocean Edge and area

Least Black Arches good for here
