The summering 2CY Shag now in wing moult in Heysham harbour

One of the two Rock Pipit seen briefly on fence near inner end of Heysham wooden jetty - we hope the other bird is in the last few days of incubation. Some idea of the significance of this scenario is that it takes star breeding bird billing ahead of Bittern recolonisation at Leighton Moss in a Lancs context - there has never been a summering pair, never mind a nesting attempt (with the nominate petrosus considered a scarce visitor as previously explained)

Med Gull: High tide late afternoon: 10 x Ad (one metal-only ringed, but 7 of them sat down!), 1 x 3CY with either orange or red darvic, 2 x 2CY. Help with darvic ring reading very welcome but the heat haze is a real nuisance and numbers are low due to Heysham one outfall producing no food at the moment (still on outage)
