No extras in the strong wind other than more juv Meds

Heysham Obs

Ringing recovery
The juv Med seen here on 31/7/16 (but not definitely since) ringed as follows:
ZKR4/Praha ET05047
Karvina, Melcina Fishpond, North Moravia, Czech Republic 49 88N 18 50E  Nestling   22/5/16 

Thanks to Josef for a quick response

Outfalls/Red Nab
Almost as though various birds present on and off recently (including the same Sandwich Tern??) reappeared on the outfalls during the strong winds and rough seas.  The exceptions being the older age class Meds which seem to have mainly moved on

Med Gull - 2 x Ad, 5 x juv
Little Gull - adult
Sandwich tern - adult
Kittiwake - 2CY
Gannet - adult at long range but no time to do any seawatching as such

Decent variety including Mouse Moth (rare these days), two White-line Dart, Barred Rivulet, Double Lobed
