7th Dec

Not a great deal report today with just a Velvet Scoter and an adult Mediterranean Gull offshore and Chiffchaff in the bushes of note.

On the RSPB Reserve, the Ring-necked Duck was still showing well near Boulderwall Farm and two Caspian Gulls (adult and first-winter) were amongst the thousands of gulls which came into roost in the evening.

The day ended with this spectacular sunset.
