More high tide coverage

Heysham Obs
Moth trapping at various VC60 sites is still taking precedent over early morning migration coverage but that will be changing this weekend as the night temperatures take a dip.  In the meantime, the only Heysham activity was work, a high tide check and a rather poor moth catch

Red Nab just before high tide
As you were:
Little Gull - ad
Sandwich Tern - 2 ad, one fishing offshore
Med Gull - 4 x 2CY, 1 x juv, 4 x adult
Redshank - 110
Curlew - 62
Oystercatcher - 2550
Black-headed Gull - 485

Didn't have time to check down the tideline towards Middleton

The only one of note was a Copper Underwing
