8th Dec

A 1.5hrs seawatch this morning produced 333 Red-throated Divers and three Great Skuas of note and three Merlins also flew through. A check of the Patch saw many thousands of feeding gulls and included three Caspian Gulls and a Yellow-legged Gull. One of the Caspian Gulls, a second-winter bird, was bearing a yellow colour ring, and this bird appeared later on the RSPB Reserve where it could be read.
Very quiet on the land although a Dartford Warbler was seen again at the Point.
