2nd December

Most of the interest today was at the Patch where a new colour-ringed adult Caspian Gull (PKKK) was seen along with a first-winter Little Gull and a third-winter Yellow-legged Gull amongst hordes of commoner gulls. A party of seven Red-breasted Mergansers and two late Sandwich Terns also flew west at the fishing boats.


Four Firecrests and two Chiffchaffs were seen in the trapping area and a Brambling and 18 Siskins flew over whilst 900 Starlings arrived.
