Too Late....

....for the 'Tern Show' at Heysham yesterday.

Whitethroat. Noushka @ 1000-Pattes

But I managed to talk KT into an hour along the sea wall in the later afternoon to find 13 Wheatear, being 11 flying off Red Nab in procession toward Ocean Edge, and two on the waste ground at the south wall where there was 3 Willow Warblera Whitethroat, and a White Wagtail, 8 Common Sandpiper were below the sea wall between outfalls....Thanks for the Whitethroat Noushka.

Two Buzzard soaring high and loudly mewing together over Bowerham in Lancaster on Saturday.  

During the week a reliable report made to me was of an Otter in the sea off Happy Mount Park, seen as a scarce if not rare sighting in Morecambe Bay. Though the Eurasian Otter can be seen ocassionally in the sea, they require regular access to fresh water to clean their fur, they are sometimes incorrectly refered to as Sea Otter which is a native to the coasts of the northern and eastern North Pacific Ocean.

Thanks for this Colin, an excellent record for Morecambe Bay.
