4th February

The first-winter Caspian and Glaucous Gulls were showing well at the fishing boats as usual. A Velvet Scoter, a few Kittiwakes and around 600 auks flew west in the early morning and a count at low water this afternoon gave a total of 2330 Great Crested Grebes feeding offshore.
Yet more images of the Caspian Gull.
