Juvenile Caspian Gull!

 The Gull Boys (Mick Southcott and Richard Smith) attracted this superb juvenile Caspian Gull onto the beach late this afternoon, with there mixture of fish offal, popcorn and bread. There will without doubt be much better images on the their blogs &

 This morning around the peninsular small numbers of Willow Warblers and Common Whitethroats, a Whinchat in the trapping area and 3 more at Galloways per PB, though I could only find one later on. The ARC is getting better with 3 Little Ringed Plovers, a Black-tailed Godwit and a Greenshank among the Lapwings, also 3 Ruff seen by KP.
A very unseasonal sighting from the fishing boats of a Little Auk by AJG & RW, which drifted out to sea before I could get there.
 The Plodland MV was very busy this morning with 46 species of macros, including an n amazing 7 Jersey Tigers, 6 of which behaved the other was off before I could photograph it, also of note a Gem.
