Bits on the sea

Heysham Obs
A short session on the north harbour wall was not completely useless

0710-0745 north harbour wall
Arctic Skua - lm on the sea, then in 0730
Gannet - 2 out
Razorbill or Guillemot - one out
Swallow - 21 in
House Martin - 9 in
Sand Martin - 1 in
Starling - adult and recently fledged young by gate

Middleton NR
Grasshopper Warbler - just one singing briefly
Gadwall - at least one and quite possibly two different pairs seen on two separate occasions

A fractionally better night still only produced one Brown Silver Line and one Herald
