Little Gulls

A much cooler morning with 100% cloud cover and the North Easterly blowing stronger than ever.
Over The Patch 5 Little Gulls, 9 Mediterranean Gulls were of note. Also the first juvenile Common Tern and Juvenile Herring Gulls that I have seen there this year. Off shore 40+ Gannets were feeding and 50+ Common Scoter moved east. A Grey Seal was also there.

 As I walked into the observatory the juvenile House Martin was chirping away and looked up expectantly. It is obviously doing well on its diet of moths.
At the south end of the ARC a Greenshank, a Common Sandpiper and a Little Egret.
From Hanson 9 Black-tailed Godwits, 2 Dunlin and 4 Little Egrets along with all the eclipse Ducks.
A Marsh Harrier flew over the car park towards Boulderwall and several Tree Sparrows were in the bushes.
While listening to the cricket a Little egret flew over the house along with 3 Spitfires in tight formation.
