A day of mixed weather but producing some good gulls. At least two first year Glaucous Gulls were present today, the regular bird was seen at the Patch and a darker bird at the fishing boats. Two Caspian Gulls, an adult and a 2nd winter along with a 3rd winter Yellow-legged Gull were also at the fishing boats. Six Sandwich Terns and 367 Brent Geese were also noted.
A Black Redstart was present opposite the Lifeboat Station and a single Chiffchaff was singing in a private garden at the point.
Seven Porpoise were also seen offshore.
