|Juvenile Little Gull|
We returned and I spent a couple of hours with many others in the lea of the jetty hoping the Arctic waif would appear. False hopes were raised by the appearance of 2 juvenile Little Gulls together with an adult. An Oystercatcher and 20 Turnstones briefly showed themselves and a few Kittiwakes were also around. At 3.20pm and with squally showers now established we left no wiser as to what a Ross's Gull looks like in the flesh. Getting home I read online that the gull was seen briefly at 4.02pm. When will I learn? I did appreciate the 2 Lesser Redpolls on the niger seed in the garden this morning. There's always another day!
