      A group of 14 LDBWS members enjoyed searching for Mediterranean Gulls at Heysham on the incoming tide this morning. Highlights in roughly chronological order:

      Heysham Nature Park – 1 Painted Lady

      Red Nab (Brief check at low tide) – 2 Med Gulls (1 adult and 1 juvenile)

      Heysham Outfalls – 8 Med Gulls (2 adults, 2 3rd CY and 4 juveniles), 1 1st CY Kittiwake, 1 Eider and 8 Turnstone

      Red Nab (Longer check during incoming tide) – 10 Med Gulls (6 adults, including 1 with a right leg green darvic ring, 1 3rd CY, 1 2nd CY and 2 juveniles), 1 adult Peregrine (briefly flushing the assembled waders and gulls), 2 Whimbrel and 1 Rock Pipit.

      Assuming some duplication of Med Gulls at the different locations there were a minimum of 13 different individuals – 6 adults, 2 3rd CY, 1 2nd CY and 4 juveniles.

        Thanks for leading the walk Pete 🙂
        There were two additional Kittiwakes in the back of the harbour.
