No surprises today

It is still cool when sun not shining. Checked all along south shore and harbour wall, not a butterfly to be seen today, let alone a Painted lady.

Gull numbers on outflows and Red Nab significantly increased, but no sign of Mediterranean gulls.

Middleton Nature Reserve - yesterday evening
Grasshopper warbler 1 reeling
Stock dove 2 seen together twice.

Heysham Reserve
A few butterflies around the reserve, mostly Common Blue and Speckled Wood.

Burnet Companion - one behind office building

Little Egret - one with Grey Heron on main marsh

Roe Deer - one splashing about to right hand side of jetty boardwalk, possibly browsing on young trees growing in the flooded area there.
