First of the new generation

Heysham Obs
The only observing today involved a trip to the north wall to receive mobile reception. Incidentally, the mobile coverage (at least Orange) is being fully restored in the area just after 10pm this evening. Best was a juvenile Shag (perhaps not surprising given recent Walney & Rossall observations) on the wooden jetty and the Ad & one 2nd W Med Gulls were along the north harbour wall.

A Painted Lady was by the office late afternoon but nothing of any interest graced the moth trap.

Great White Egret apparently still at Leighton Moss EM Pool but Little Egret numbers are dwindling to low double-figures. The first autumnal Red-throated Diver for the inner Bay was seen off JBPoint
