18th Dec

A change in the wind to a light SE induced an easterly movement of Brent Geese with 547 birds in two hours this morning along with three Red-breasted Mergansers and a sickly-looking Great Skua. A third-winter Caspian Gull and a Yellow-legged Gull were seen at the Patch and ten Mediterranean Gulls were also seen during the morning.

A Common Seal was feeding offshore.
