Very light breezes starting SW ending WNW, often breathless in between. Overcast for most of the day but the sun came out at 15:30 and made it a very nice evening.

The Priorslee, Telford (Shropshire) wintering male Grey Wagtail starting to sing and presumably getting ready to move north (see post entry 20/12/20 for details).

Heysham skeer late afternoon (MD)
It was absolutely beautiful out on the skeer this evening. I left my coat and pullover near conger and completed my walk in a T shirt! (Although by the time I got back to my coat at 17:00 it was getting cooler quickly).
Nothing unusual about:
Red-breasted Merganser 3
Great Crested grebe 2
The sea was like a mirror, if the Goldeneye had been feeding I would have seen it.
Here's another unusual angle shot.

When I said the sea was like a mirror......

|Kevin managed this shot of a Black-headed gull on the "forbidden rails" |
on the structure over No.2 outflow. Originally there had been two, but one chickened out!
