31st May

Another cold, very windy and occasionally wet day restricted any serious observations to the sea and the Patch again. The first-summer Herring x Glaucous Gull was present all day and was joined by two Caspian Gulls (a first-summer and a second-summer) in the afternoon. The same Arctic Skua as yesterday, three Mediterranean Gulls, three Little Terns and two Black Terns were also feeding there along with 800 Common Terns

A Grey Seal was also seen.
