The wind was back in the prevailing SW. mainly dry, but the showers were heavy.
Just my stuff so far, possibly more to come (MD)
No sign of the Brent today, checked at either side of high water and low water.
Red Nab area - high water
Rock Pipit 2
|Some of the Redshank|
Plenty of Wigeon, but scattered around
Children's play area out from Knowlys Rd - both sides of high water.
Ringed Plover 40+
|There are 29 Ringed Plover on this frame|
This bird was ringed near Hamburg 22/03/13. It has over wintered at Heysham for the last two years, unfortunately there have been no sightings elsewhere.
Heysham Skeer - low water
Occasionally spooked by a Peregrine falcon
Great Crested Grebe 3
Things don't get much more "ordinary" than this - it is the gut weed in the corner of the skeer, that the Canadian ringed Brent were feeding on yesterday
It's lusher than what's on offer by the end of the winter,
but it hardly looks worth crossing the bay for,
let alone the North Atlantic!
