Small Twite influx

Heysham Obs
Plenty of food down by lunchtime and a good number of finches on the seed but unfortunately disturbed just as I was starting to scope them.  Certainly more 'jumpy' now there are not many of the more tolerant Goldfinch with them

North harbour wall
Med Gull - 2 adults (one behind ferry, then back out)
Kittiwake - adult behind ferry (at least - arrived early and missed the harbour entry bit)
Linnet - 16 on seed
Goldfinch - 5 on seed
Twite - 3 on seed (2 x Heysham ringed, one unringed) (see below)
Linnet/Twite - additional c8 along the embankment with Twite as well as Linnet call coming from the flock
