There has been a few thousand Gulls around Scatness over the last few days, on the 25th I picked out a 2w Kumlien's and an adult Iceland in front of the house. And with Tesco selling their near date bread off last night at 20p a loaf, today was going to be spent gulling. Most of the Gulls were on the leeward side of Lady's Holm, so I dumped 10 loaves of bread into the sea at Moast Beach, and it didn't take too long for about a thousand of them to come in feeding. Amongst them a 1w Glaucous and 2 Iceland Gulls (1w and 2w) and a rather pale 1w Herring Gull.
A bit of a surprise was a Goldfinch briefly in the garden, presumably one of the birds from last autumn still hanging about.
