    A little flurry of stuff off HeySham this am including first Little Tern and (8) Manx of the year but unfortunately not the black Guille seen flying in at Rossall

    Sea today in two sessions from heysham north wall included 5 Arctic Skua, yet another Puffin and something which was unfortunately just a bit too distant to clinch the identification as a putative so Slav Grebe. Size, Flight jizz, upperwing features spot on but could eg only see a ‘dark’ head and too far away to see the detail

    HeySham: Bit of a madhouse on the sea 0700-0720ish and a steady amount of stuff from 0630 until it dried up suddenly at about 0745. Ad LM Pom out at 0710 rapidly followed by an inbound very close dark Arctic at 0711. A heat haze set in about 0730 and what may have been the same Pom heading back in at 0740 at longer range couldn’t be clinched. Quite a few inbound Kittiwake this am. See posting later today on HeySham Obs site which will hopefully include some stuff from this evenings incomer. Need the forecasted cloud cover and increased wind to materialise.

    Rubbish this morning with apologies to 23 Gannet and 6 Razorbill, but it did see the start of the Sanderling spring passage with one on the seawatch and then four feeding on Heysham skeer at low tide
