More intertidal disturbance

Heysham Obs
Unusually, the Red Nab end today (and perhaps responsible for nothing on there yesterday?).  Single male with one white dog and one ginger terrier with a black back - the dogs were running all over the mudflats off Red Nab.  If anyone from Ocean Edge knows this gentleman, please could you have a quiet word and draw his attention to the informative notices along the seaward edge of the site.  Thanks.

Red Nab/outfalls etc
Kittiwake - 2CY
Med Gull - just one adult
Little Gull - 2CY really inconspicuous sat alone on the mudflats!

Nice catch with Bordered Beauty the highlight

Three rounds by the office produced about a dozen birds before it became too windy
