Heysham Obs
.............are not a lot of use here.  A half-hour seawatch saw an adult British Lesser Black-backed Gull south (carefully checked).

Couple of decent things came to light in the afternoon
A belated check of the moth trap saw pale tussock - the second record I think
Also one of our cr grey wagtails is nesting at botton mill in upper hindburndale - a sighting today suggested a 2015- ringed bird

Red Nab/Ocean Edge
Whimbrel - late flock of three

Pics from the last few days (thanks Janet) at Middleton NR
