July 28th - I popped in quickly on my way to work and found a juvenile Mediterranean Gull preening on the spit. It looked quite dusky in the loral area and a bit messy on the head which gave it the impression of only being recently fledged. Anyway a couple of record shots into the sun and then off. Alan S could not find it a couple of hours later. This is only my second this year, which is a poor showing for this species here - I would normally expect into double figures of these during a year with a good Spring passage, but I only managed one in late Winter, early Spring bird. Not much else seen in 10 minutes.
