16th January

A very cold but bright and sunny day was relatively uneventful with decent numbers of Gannets, Great Crested Grebes and Guillemots feeding offshore and the regular first-winter Caspian Gull still present the only birds of note.

I wonder if this might be the most photographed individual gull in the world?
