    I’m stepping in to do the WhatsApp updates while Andrew’s away:

    [25/04/2024, 08:35] Various: Low/turning tide seawatch from back of heysham harbour as yesterday: much better than expected in routine sampling in unfavourable NW wind: 75-85 Sandwich tern but only 11 in Lancs!, dm Arctic skua low up Kent channel line, briefly chasing ST, 19 pinkfeet, 30 bar tailed godwit, 6 whimbrel, 15 swallow. Most unexpected in nw winds was a group of 5 Arctic tern heading in

    [25/04/2024, 09:18] Various: Glosdy ibis still in horse paddock – nothing further of note on sea to 0900 as wind got up and sandbanks covered

    [25/04/2024, 15:35] Various: Little gull (no age mentioned) Allen pool late am (per RBA). Info suggests access still closed. Can someone clarify please?
