25th May

Very little to report. A Mediterranean Gull and a Yellow-legged Gull were seen at the Patch and a Corn Bunting flew over the Observatory.

One Grizzled Skipper was seen.

Late in the afternoon we heard about an adult Laughing Gull on the beach at Hastings so a quick visit was made to see it. We had fantastic views of this beauty for about ten minutes before it disappeared whilst we were distracted rescuing some Herring Gulls from an enclosed sports court. Perhaps it will find its way to the Patch in the next day or so.
