Too windy from a horrible direction for any Ringing so the plan was to check the low tide channels off Heysham Head. It wasn’t easy with a lot of orange sky silhouettes and a significant “heat”haze.
Eider - absolute minimum of 710 and probably at least another hundred. No chance of discerning anything in the main mass in the second channel
Common Scoter - two females close inshore
Great crested Grebe - at least one
Med gull - presumed Czech adult North wall
Chaffinch - 10 south, the only perceived vis
Green Woodpecker present by hnr office last Thursday
