Another Casp

1st February - a nice 2nd winter Caspian Gull was showing well off the end of the near spit this morning.  Unfortunately, I had forgotten to bring my camera, but at least I had my phone, so I took some shots and a short video:

There was also a nasal saddled male Tufted Duck - the second of these I have seen following a female seen over several years.  The colour of the saddle looks green, but it is actually faded pale blue and the code is either B6B or B68.  The final B or 8 was hard to read at distance, but hopefully it is enough for the ringer to recognise.  It will undoubtedly have been ringed near Nantes in France like the other one.
