Highlights from Long Nab include a Great Skua, a Mediterranean Gull, 20 Curlew (17 heading north and 3 south), a Great Crested Grebe, and 511 Swifts flying south. 3 Whinchats, a pair of Stonechats and 2 fledged juveniles, and a male Redstart were all seen on the Jugger Howe nature trail. 4 Teal and a Mandarin were at Harwood Dale Lake.
