Still breezy but not nearly as bad as the last few days and mainly bright and sunny. Gulls remain the main interest with large numbers feeding on the shellfish washing up onto the beach. The juvenile Iceland Gull reappeared this afternoon and seven Mediterranean Gulls were also seen. Quiet on the land with just a couple of Long-tailed Tits at the feeders of note.
