Three of note in quick visit

Heysham outfalls is an easy food source and can attract waifs and strays, notably coffin-dodging young Kittiwakes in winter gales.  This Arctic Tern appeared today and the anomolies may have impeded its migration.  Wheatear very late - a small female

Outfalls/Red Nab
Med Gull - at least one 2CY - didn't look like either of yesterdays with a lot of black on head
Arctic Tern - oddly plumaged adult-type

Wheatear - female OE foreshore
