Have a look at Heysham only 20 miles to the north and Fairhven, (see sightings for today - 14th Oct) 8 miles to the south.
Geez man...where'd they all go? Certainly didn't come over Base Camp, the stronger wind musta kept them tight to the coast over the other side of the hill and out of sight....
Got another vis mig site ID'd for when we're a bit fitter, might be getting a bit late by then though. It's one we've never tried before but is almost due north of the nature reserve where we used to record some good vis and due south of the 90 degree bend in the estuary...on paper (well OS map) it looks to have potential...and it is slightly raised has a bit of shelter and good vistas northwards so we should't miss much if there's anything moving...watch this space.
Where to next? Wonder if we can scab a ride to Fairhaven for the lingering Slavonian Grebe tomorrow and get our 200 target up.
In the meantime let us know if all birds bypassed your outback today.
