1w  Glaucous Gull at The Patch
Another bitterly cold morning found me at The Patch again looking at Gulls. The regular 1w Glaucous Gull was hunkered down on the beach though it did eventually give a fly by, a few colour rings were noted from amongst the roosting Gulls but no sign of any other white wingers. Offshore a couple of Gannets and Kittiwakes, 3 Oystercatchers flew up.

 Skylark at the fishing boats
At the fishing boats this afternoon still nothing moving offshore. A pair of Skylarks feeding around the tracks, in the roost a very nice adult Yellow-legged Gull and a couple of Norwegian ringed Great Black-backed Gulls.

Mid afternoon on the reserve the 1w Glaucous Gull came into roost but no sign of yesterdays 2w Iceland Gull while I was there.
