10th Jan

Thick, freezing fog through the morning limited observations to two Firecrests as I walked out to replenish the feeders. A check of the Patch when the fog finally cleared this afternoon showed the second-year Iceland Gull still present along with two Caspian Gulls and five Mediterranean Gulls. The Grey Wagtail was also feeding at the Sewage Treatment Unit again.

A Grey Seal was also seen.
