Stone Jetty seabirds fly into the area

Nick was on the Stone Jetty early on and had perhaps the same Bonxie as yesterday blogging before heading out, a Fulmar and a couple each of juv Common and Arctic Tern.  The bonus was an Osprey heading south into the wind over the sea as the front passed - obviously on the move and not a masochistic fishing trip from one of the nearby Cumbrian breeding pairs

Common and Arctic Tern juvs - at least one of each at various times
Shag - harbour
Med Gull - about 19

Middleton pm
Swallow roost - zero (thanks for checking Malcolm)
Coot - 2
Gadwall - 16
