A check of the gulls feeding and roosting at the Patch this morning proved quite profitable with the finding of a juvenile Caspian Gull (or hybrid). A Black Tern was also present. In the afternoon there were four Arctic Skuas and two juvenile Yellow-legged Gulls loitering at the fishing boats. There was a steady westerly movement of terns with 498 Sandwich and 635 Commons during three hours of watching.
Generally very quiet on the land
Two Porpoises and a Common Seal were feeding offshore.
