6th Dec

There were plenty of birds offshore this morning with three Great Skuas of note along with good numbers of Red-throated Diver, Gannets and Guillemots and a check of the Patch produced a third-winter Caspian Gull.
Two Grey Wagtails made a brief stop at the power station sewage treatment unit and a Firecrest and a Bullfinch were seen in the trapping area.

Two Porpoises were also seen offshore.

There was another excellent roost of gulls on Burrowes Pit this evening with at least ten Caspian Gulls and five Yellow-legged Gulls being seen.
