The osprey and the loo

Heysham Obs
Patchwork Challenge going pear-shaped in the last two days.  This morning's saga comprised dropping off some Lead-coloured Drab for the Belted Beauty workshop people to see at Pott's Corner, needing the loo, so atypically driving right past Middleton NR at 0950 heading for Heysham NR office.  Osprey flies north-east over Middleton at 0955!

Not a lot else today with no change from yesterday as regards additional sightings at Middleton and a single gannet far offshore was the only flicker of additional avian interest
