I ended the last post with a prediction of sorts. Bizarrely it came true...
12:16 on a quiet Saturday, lunch consumed and a casual glance at the phone. Message from Gary.
Head-less chicken mode ensued.
An hour later and I'm there... a UK/world tick for me, and weirdly, not quite as expected... a second 1st winter appeared as the bird flew over our heads off out to the beach!

In addition to the Ivory Gulls - peregrine and woodcock
