30th Jan

The Patch was very productive this morning with both the regular first-winter Iceland Gulls still present along with five Caspian Gulls (3 x 1w, 2w, ad), a second-winter Yellow-legged Gull and an adult Mediterranean Gull among the thousands of gulls present.
There was only limited movement offshore although the Range Safety boat flushed 425 Red-throated Diver out of the bay.
A male Black Redstart was also seen in the power station behind the Patch.
