26th Jan

What was supposed to be a nice day was spoilt by thick fog for most of it. The juvenile Glaucous Gull was seen at the Patch and the first-winter Caspian Gull was at the fishing boats as usual. Good numbers of Red-throated Divers and Great Crested Grebes were also seen offshore. It was very quiet on the land although at least one Dartford Warbler was seen near the railway station.
