An hours seawatch just after dawn in almost calm conditions was quiet as expected with just a few wildfowl moving including 25 Brent Geese, 46 Common Scoter and 69 Pintail. Also of note was a Sandwich Tern west and a Caspian Gull east. At the Patch the two Iceland Gulls were still in residence plus an adult Mediterranean Gull and a new Caspian Gull which later relocated to the Fishing Boats and showed well with two Yellow-legged Gulls.
