Older Meds return

Heysham Obs
An early low tide visit with the longshot of a Stormie feeding on the seaward end of the outfalls and then a short check on the early stages of the incoming tide (nothing new added on this visit)

Outfalls/Red Nab
Little Gull - ad summer seaward end Heysham 2 outfall
Sandwich Tern - presumably the adult on Red Nab
Med Gull - 5 x ad, 4 x 2CY, 3 x 1CY - all but two of the juvs on Red Nab
Curlew - 310

YESTERDAY: 4 x Common Scoter (unusual this time of year) and another Gannet off the north wall lunchtime (thanks Tom)

Not a lot but did include Barred Rivulet and not a single Large Yellow Underwing!
