Hello Kitty!

Dan here.

A 2nd calendar-year kittiwake was feeding on the river with a few black-headed gulls off Marsh Point late morning.

This attractive maritime gull can be numerous at Heysham in times of strong onshore winds (a respectable 44 today), but Aldcliffe kitts are a much scarcer proposition. My first here, at least.

Around four hundred pink-footed geese were on the marsh, along with over six-hundred lapwings.

A great black-backed gull was making a baleful noise as it mobbed a buzzard near Freeman's Wood.
