I picked up a 1st summer Med Gull in flight around the SW corner, with its distinctive bandit mask. It was carrying something in its bill and being chased by a horde of Black-headed Gulls. Eventually, it landed on the near spit where the other BHG were congregated and dropped what looked like a stick. It only remained for about 5 minutes and then seemed to depart to the north. I don't usually see this age of Med Gull this time of year, they are often adult or sometimes 2nd summer, but this is their passage period.

The regular Bar-headed Goose was also back on the spit with a few Greylags following its winter migration to the Jubilee River at Marsh Lane near Dorney.
