Gull watchers found two Caspian Gulls (second-winter and third-winter) at the fishing boats this afternoon and four Mediterranean Gulls were seen in the morning when a Great Northern Diver and a Great Skua flew west. Large numbers of Gannets were also feeding offshore.

The drake Ring-necked Duck, Cattle Egret and Long-eared Owl were all present on the RSPB Reserve and three new Caspian Gulls were seen on Burrowes.
