Although the wind eventually veered into the south it was still tough going in the cold and windy conditions. A one hour seawatch this morning saw 45 Brent Geese and a few Red-throated Divers, Gannets and auks move east. There were thousands of birds at the Patch again with the regular Iceland Gull along with five Mediterranean Gulls, six (five first-winters and a third-winter) Caspian Gulls and a second-winter Yellow-legged Gull.
