Little Egret invasion

Heysham Obs
Some strange goings on on Heysham skeer.  First gangs of Canada Geese overnight, now Little Egrets

Heysham skeer
Little Egret - usually 2-4, but 8 on Monday morning and a massive 19 this morning (thanks Malcolm)

Outfalls/Red Nab
A bit late but plenty of gulls but not a lot of interest in relation to numbers
Arctic Tern - adult briefly
Med Gull - 3 x 2CY

Swallow-tailed Moth and Short-cloaked Moth new for year

Fairly successful by office - early dispersing young Sedge Warbler the most notable & a collection of presumed local finches and warblers totalling about 40 birds
