28th Feb

A party of four Velvet Scoters and 41 Kittiwakes flew west in the first hour this morning and a Great Skua was lingering offshore. One Iceland Gull remains at the Patch and the first-winter Caspian Gull was showing well in the roosting flock alongside the road and near the Fish Hut. Two Mediterranean Gulls were also seen. 

One other new arrival was that of Lee Gregory to start his season as Assistant Warden. We hope he enjoys his time here and wish him all the best for the coming season.
