The two Iceland Gulls were still feeding at the Patch along with two Mediterranean Gulls and the drake Common Eider. A Great Skua and a first-winter Little Gull were feeding off the fishing boats and a Pochard flew by.
The trapping area was very quiet and the Long Pits were almost frozen over but two small patches of open water held two Little Grebes and two Gadwall.
Of interest, yesterdays colour-ringed Caspian Gull was seen previously at Dungeness on 25th November 2016.

A Porpoise was also seen.
