R.Taw - 0ff Pottington Ind Est and Ashford Sewage Works.

11:15 - 12:30

47 Lesser Black-backed Gulls. 123 Shelduck on Penhill Marsh and forshore.

12:05 3 Little Gulls together, beating their way down river just off Ashford Sewage Works in the strong westerly wind and jinking their way down towards Chivenor. At 12:15 a single bird was seen slowly flying the same way and occasionally landing briefly on foreshore to pick up titbits. Classic dark-grey underwings and rounded white tips. None of the birds had fully developed full black heads. Constantly in view until 12:30.
