A quick look from Firth Hide I couldn't find the Smew that Paul reported earlier so I thought it was going to be bad day. But then things changed and a Chiffchaff flew in front of me my first of the year. It was then off to the beach to look for the Glaucous Gull. Having parked a quick scan of the gull roosts I could see a snowball amoungst the gulls and set off towards the New Lighthouse.
2 for the price of 1, the 1st winter Glaucous was next to the 1st winter Caspian.
