A Dusky Warbler was found by a visiting Birder in the back of the 2nd car park - I could not locate it later in the morning. The hybrid Mediterranean x Black-headed Gull that was around last early - mid Nov has returned to the beach with a small flock of Black-headed Gulls. Judging from previous experience with another hybrid at Preston for 4 consecutive years this bird will be in its 3rd calendar year (so 3rd winter).
