A slow day with just two Caspian Gulls (second- and third-winters) and a second-winter Yellow-legged Gull being seen offshore of any note.
A Grey Seal was also feeding offshore.
We also received details of an interesting (if unfortunate) ringing recovery today which involved a Song Thrush ringed at the Observatory this year on 6th October and sadly shot 49 days later at Marcilla, Navarra, SPAIN on 24th November. A distance of 978km SSW.
