First thing this morning at Boulderwall the Ring-necked Duck, also Cattle, Great White and Little Egret and 2 Marsh Harriers.
At the Dipping Pool the Long-eared Owl still on its chosen perch. A quick look from Firth revealed very few Gulls so down to the fishing boats and come back later.
Fairly quiet at the fishing boats a scan of the horizon saw 87 Gannets slowly moving down channel. 3 Mediterranean Gulls and c20 Kittiwakes were offshore, a single Brent goose flew into Lade bay, a single Turnstone on the beach and 17 Great-crested Grebes were off shore.
Great White Egret from Firth
Back at Firth I located 4 Caspian Gulls (Ad,1w,2w,3w) also and adult and a 3w Yellow-legged Gull.
A kingfisher was back and forth in front the hide  and a Great White egret dropped in.
An afternoon visit to Firth and DW had located another Caspian Gull sporting a green ring 76P0.
