Ilfracombe Capstone Point

Lunchtime 1 or 2 Great Skuas were loitering close to feeding Porpoise, they then broke up a flock of 100 Black headed gulls and predated one of them. There seems to be a lot of Great BBgulls taken up residence, regularly numbers up to 30, at least 2 with red Davic rings. 2 Black Redstarts have arrived along the Landmark car park seen bickering with Rock Pipits and Robins. 

I checked through the Gulls at Barnstaple Old Bridge, I found 2 ringed Black headed Gulls. One from Hiddensee German western Baltic the other from Meriden west midlands.
