Canadians spearhead Brent return

Thursday provisional - hopefully more later.

Pale-bellied Brent goose - 14:15 (two hours before low water) there were 6 on the water on the South side of Heysham skeer. These came ashore and revealed themselves to be two adults plus four juveniles.

The adults were the pair of Canadian ringed birds.

There is no suitable food here, the birds just preened. Most of the gut weed has gone from this area (storm damage), but there are some pockets of broken weed. Hopefully that will be enough for now (MD).
