A massive minimum of 1036 off heysham this am quite probably another 150 or so as I was cautious counting the two dense groups and some were concealed by skeer. No ad male king but who knows re queen/imm male at that range (obs from north wall) Chance to restore king eider to lancs list after losing it when Lancs north of sands was deemed Cumbrian!

Thanks go to Pete Crooks for today's header photo of Aldcliffe. If you have a suitable picture of a local birding spot, why not send it to the webmaster, at andymccafferty@gmail.com? I need to resize (and if necessary crop) pictures to make them 600x130 pixels, so ideally send it at that size (definitely not smaller).
