Caspian Gull!

A lovely warm autumn day on the peninsular but fairly quiet avian wise. Around the trapping area a few Finches over including Siskin, Redpoll and Brambling. In the bushes a few Goldcrests and Chiffchaffs. A Marsh Harrier and a Great Spotted Woodpecker also flew through. Of note a dartford Warbler seen by SG.
Late morning I was joined by Sally on walk out to the back of Scotney to the wind turbines, which stood stationary with not a breath of wind to stir them. We saw most of the usual birds out there, including 6 Common Buzzards, 2 Short-eared Owls and a Merlin, also the Rough-legged Buzzard which was over Cheyne.
This afternoon I joined Mick and Richard on the beach for an afternoon of Gulling. See HERE how they pull in the Gulls.
At least 2 1w Caspian Gulls came in this afternoon.
