Another Iceland Gull

Heysham Obs
2CY Iceland Gull harbour mouth and area at least 0810-0815, then drifted between gap in wooden jetty towards outfalls - couldn't find on scan from Ocean Edge but plenty of visually dead ground between outfalls.  Will have a wander down soon

Purple Sandpiper with c130 Turnstone along north harbour wall after being flushed from beneath wooden jetty

Gannet - 3 distant ad offshore but didn't get here until 0800

Still 'need' Common Scoter (for the year) but fortunately not Hudsonian Godwit (see todays national news)!
