With a light south-westerly breeze, a low tide for mid afternoon and overcast skies it had the makings of a good day.
Out went the bucket and c.400 gulls within ten minutes, in amongst them was a 1st. winter Caspian ..
It performed well but didn't hang around for long and never returned ..
Caspian Gull ~ 1st. W
A distinctive looking bird with quite a heavily barred tail, that hopefully returns for a few more visits to the bucket through the winter and will be easy to trace ..
