A Black-throated Diver flew east this morning and a Great Skua was loitering offshore.

There were thousands of gulls at the Patch this afternoon with the regular two first-winter Iceland Gulls still present along with two new first-winter Caspian Gulls.

For an idea of just how many gulls there are at the Patch at the moment click here and here for some short videos.
