The running sore of Potts corner

Heysham obs
Depressingly predictably the pony and trap ran the whole length of the tideline flushing all the waders along about a mile with only the grey plover and a handful of Dunlin returning. The birds try and persist through this because the area is so rich in food but numerous attempts to engage those who can influence access and behaviour have proved to be a complete waste of effort

A few odds and ends were ringed by the office notably sedge warbler and grey wagtail

12 med gulls (4 x juv) were seen on red nab, ocean edge saltmarsh or on the outfalls
