The block continues but..........

Heysham Obs
...............always give even the most useless of seawatches an hour! Nothing at all worth writing in the notebook 0830-0900 but a quality sighting at 0915 in the form of three Velvet Scoter (probably 2 males/one female) flying out and across the Bay towards south Walney before landing on the sea. Two Kittiwake flew 'in'

Vis Mig
Just 13 northbound Meadow Pipit & 3 Linnet during 0830-1000 at the north wall

Nothing obvious

Just one 1st W Little Gull could be found on the outfalls late afternoon. Two juvenile Shag on the wooden jetty in the morning

Only the second Small Quaker since 1990!

The three Whooper Swans still on the Lune floodplain at Farleton late pm. Red Kite seen and photographed again at Hawthornthwaite fell
