Puffin Brace

14th June 2012 – bright and sunny E3/4
In recent years June has been the month to see Puffin off Walney and true to form observations (0815-0915) produced two birds heading into Morecambe Bay. Also seen were small numbers of Razorbill, Guillemot, Sandwich Tern and a lone Barnacle Goose heading north.
Grounded Migrants
A Spotted Flycatcher was newly arrived and presumably still heading to its breeding grounds.
Burnish Brass and Gold Spot are the latest new additions for the year.
