After two days of huge south-westerlies and bugger all seabirds (too windy?) news of a juvenile sabine's gull hanging about on patch was most welcome. It was quite a big twitch in the end with 7 people there at its height, and kev even got out of the car (though he was scanning from inside it with the window up when we got there - what's that all about?)
A scan of the seaweed strewn lagoon at Long Strand produced another year tick this evening in the form of turnstone - two in a day, I'm on fire! (115).
