1w Glaucous Gull again!

 Another very cold morning watch at the fishing boats where I was joined by CP. We saw a trickle of Red-throated Divers coming in and out of the bay, 2 Mediterranean Gulls, c100 Guillemots, a few Razorbills and the usual Cormorants and Great-crested Grebes. With no sign of any Glaucous Gulls we walked along the beach to The Point then back towards the Lifeboat Station, about 400yds short of the Lifeboat Station we found the 1w Glaucous Gull which promptly flew back to The Point. Time for Breakfast and some domestic stuff.
At Scotney most of the grey geese were absent, only 5 Brent Geese of note. On the reserve the drake Smew was again viewable from the entrance track and the Long-eared Owl was still present.  
Back at the boats this afternoon the gull reappeared and showed well again, hopefully it will perform well tomorrow for those who have to work during the week.  


 At the puddles!

    1. The Caspo is a very obliging bird, I'm sure you will have no trouble with it Bob.
