A day with fierce, bitingly cold NE winds and another very rough sea making conditions for birding extremely difficult. Huge numbers of gulls were feeding offshore with the second-winter Iceland Gull and juvenile Glaucous Gull feeding at the Patch and four Caspian Gulls feeding at the fishing boats. Two Mediterranean Gulls and 150 Kittiwakes were also present amid the throng.
A few birds were also moving offshore with 103 Brent Geese, nine Pintails, 11 Teal and a Great Skua of note.
