Middlebere Sabine's Gull

Had a call from Steve Smith to say he was watching a juv Sabine's Gull at Middlebere. Didnt waste any time getting down there which proved the right thing to do as within a minute of me arriving it was off down the channel. It did seem quite settled as I scoped it on the water but with no warning it was up and off. Managed to grab the camera out of the bag but only got this terrible shot of it flying away

That was the last time it was seen despite a lot of searching in the area. Whilst we were waiting to see if it would come back a couple of Terns went through together. A Common and this juv Arctic

We were also treated to a visit by this lovely Fox
