Lower Cuckmere 18/12/18

On Sunday 16th a brief afternoon visit produced five Caspian Gulls (two adults, two second-winters and a first-winter). There were also about ten Yellow-legged Gulls and twenty argentatus.

After a brief and hopeless seawatch this morning, another scan of the Gull flocks produced a total of six Caspian Gulls (adult, three second-winters & two first-winters) over a couple of hours. All of the younger birds today were different to all those I've seen this winter period, but typically with the adults its very hard to determine. Also today were roughly ten Yellow-legged Gulls including a first-winter, and again many argentatus.

Sadly nout else to report.
