Heysham welcomes back Canadian visitors13/01/2020
First these 10
By 09:10 they had been joined by 12 more
And by 09:55, 26 were moving in with the tide towards rocks in front of children’s play area.
By 11:10, all 26 had moved to Red Nab – these 24 together on water, plus 2 feeding separately on rocks.
These eventually started feeding on margins revealing two of them to be the Canadian ringed birds seen here last spring.
