      A quiet morning between 0720 and 0850.

      2 Red throated Diver out
      1 Common Scoter – female flying up the estuary
      25 Kittiwake in
      1 Gannet in
      6 Ringed Plover
      5 Sandwich Tern

      Rock Pipit – male singing most of the time I was there.

      Also steady stream of Swallows in

        A quiet morning for you Phil- granted. But not as quiet as my watch this morning:

        0715-0945, W1-2 later NW3 (2 oktas- later 6, dry)

        Swallow 5 NE
        Red-breasted Merganser pair in at high tide
        Goldfinch 1 N
        Guillemot 1 NE
        Osprey 1* NE along Morecambe Front 0910

        no tern passage but 5 or 6 Sandwich Terns feeding at close range and in middle distance, also two Great Crested Grebes.

        No sight or sound of Rock Pipit on jetty.

        Can anyone beat this tomorrow?

        *PJM had another Osprey sighting earlier in the morning– one seen moving in bay (NE?) off Heysham around 0730.
