Hi Jeff
The lighthouse bird - still present today - is by all accounts a Petrosus rock pipit - an intriguing example of the normal sedentary form in this country. The nearest known recent breeding by this species anywhere near Heysham was a pair on Chapel Island a couple or three years ago. I have not seen it but pics will be available soon from multi observes. More sandwich tern than earlier on but which little gull was left - hope it was the pink adult summer bird ( see Heysham site).....or a fourth bird passing through on behaviour :-)

Just found out that a Water Pipit was
posted on "Rear bird alert" yesterday
13th. For the 12th for Heysham and it
was not me who posted it.

Taken from this site Jeff - the rare bird people spend ages trawling local bird sites such as this for records (and of course also checking their competitors info!).
