27th Nov

The day began with very thick fog then cleared to bright and sunny for a time before the weather closed in again in the afternoon. A brief check of the trapping area produced a single Firecrest and a Snow Bunting flying over. A check of the gulls at the fishing boats was also worthwhile with two Caspian Gulls and a first-winter Yellow-legged Gull being found.
