Lovely gulls

Very wet and windy conditions overnight meant there was no point getting up early. Leisurely breakfast then up to the Point for a seawatch. I was very quiet with only 2 Arctic skua, gannet, 6 black scoter and a blue winged teal recorded.

There was a nice mixed roost of gulls on the beach so it was good to spend some time looking at juv American herring gulls. Still none the wiser though!!
