The first-winter Caspian Gull remains around the "Fish Hut" whilst three Mediterranean and two adult Little Gulls were feeding at the Patch. A Shag and 270 Great Crested Grebes were seen off the fishing boats. Two Black Redstarts feeding around Westbeach Cottage were the first of the year and two Stonechats were also seen. Large numbers of Barrel Jellyfish were being left by the falling tide on the beach at Greatstone.
