Lunar Hornet Clearwing Moth. First record for Heysham area. Attracted to pheromone lure.
Harbour and outflows late am (MD)
The solitary Rock Pipit is still “guarding” the nest site, but I also saw it feeding, but don’t know if it returned to nest with food.
The waders are starting to trickle back.
Redshank - 7 together plus 1 juvenile with
Turnstone 6 summer plumage plus 2 juvenile
Common Tern - at least three adult on outflows
Sandwich Tern 1

Just checked to see if any other waders were around, apart from the Oystercatchers and Curlew, there were just 18 Redshank (12, 3, 3)
Great Crested Grebe 3 summer plumage.
