12th December

With a brief spell of calm weather this morning a check of the bushes was in order and produced at least eight Firecrests and six Chiffchaffs in the trapping area and around the Long Pits.

Seawatching was pretty uneventful but in the afternoon the third-winter Caspian Gull (PNXB) was seen again and coming to the offerings of bread.
