17th Dec

Not a great deal of change with plenty of birds feeding offshore again although less in the way of obvious movement. Of note were seven Mediterranean Gulls, 300 Kittiwakes, a Sandwich Tern and a Great Skua. Colour-ringed first-year Caspian Gulls were seen at the fishing boats and at the Patch. A Merlin was also hunting around the Point.

A brief check of the trapping area this afternoon produced a Chiffchaff and a Firecrest.  

Elsewhere, the Dusky Warbler was still present around the ARC Car Park area.
