More of the same with wet and windy conditions continuing to produce a steady westerly flow of Gannets, Red-throated Divers, four Fulmars and a few auks. Two Mediterranean Gulls were feeding offshore and two Caspian Gulls (first-winter and second-winter) came into the roost at the Point.
Elsewhere, at least five Caspian Gulls roosted on Burrowes Pit this evening and a Siberian Chiffchaff and two Firecrests were showing in front of the Firth Hide. The two Whooper Swans were still feeding with the large flock of Mute Swans at Dengemarsh and the Slavonian Grebe was still on the pit south of the caravan park at Scotney.
