      Mediterranean Gull – 9 roosting on Red Nab at 8.30 am – 7 adults (including Yellow AZTZ from Germany), 1 2nd summer & 1 1st summer. As the tide began to drop the Med Gulls became spread across the exposed areas of mud between HS2 outfall and the wooden pier, with some also off the harbour mouth: at least 18 – 11 adults (including Green AKUT also from Germany), 3 2nd summer and 4 1st summer) by 10.20 am when I had to leave. Malcolm Downham stayed on so probably saw more.

      Kittiwake – long-staying 1st summer on the rocks by HS2 outfall

      Oystercatcher – 575 roosting on Red Nab

      Peregrine – 2 over Red Nab, flushing all the Oystercatcher just after I had finished counting them!

      Mute Swan – 1 immature on the foreshore between Red Nab and HS2 outfall before flying off north

      Rock Pipit – 1 displaying near the harbour lighthouse

      Ringlet – 1 in Heysham Nature Park

      Brown Rat – 1 feeding on bird seed scattered by the parking area at the entrance to the Nature Park
