The first sweep of the distant channels by heysham alerts as the tide turned saw a frenzy of feeding activity by oystercatcher on rarely exposed skeers. The channels held seaduck, mainly Eider but also a flock of welcome Scaup and something which appeared to be a female goldeneye but not certain at the range. Oddly no Rb mergansers seen
Iceland gull - another mid to late afternoon success with bread after abortive attempts earlier in the day.
Scaup - two adult drake and three female
Gadwall - 6 model boat pond
Eider - 121
