Cutting edge birding today as I discovered that the best way to tell very, very distant adult Gannets flying out of the bay from white vehicles on the Barrow coast road was that the former wheel up and down and the latter go in a straight line. Impossible to see anything other than the white section of the wings!
Gannet - 8 adults as above
Wheatear - 4
Cetti's Warbler - two singing males Middleton
Grasshopper Warbler - probably two singing males Middleton western marsh
Whitethroat - singing male Middleton at last!
Thanks for the pics from Middleton today, Janet
