16th Dec

Limited coverage today but a check of the gulls roosting at the Point was very productive with a total of five first-winter Caspian Gulls (four new individuals) being found. There did not appear to be a great deal of movement offshore although there were plenty of feeding Gannets and auks and a Pomarine Skua made a brief appearance as it harried Kittiwakes.
