Things have been very quiet for me at least on the birding front since I got back from Tunisia. It's not that there hasn't been plenty around as a few lifers have past me by in the last few weeks but I just haven't had the time to get out. All changed on Sunday when I had a few hours free and decided to to head out to Heysham docks and call in at Conder, Pilling and Bradley Lane on the way home. I wasn't looking for anything in particular I just wanted to see what was about and hopefully get a few photos.
