It is amazing at how a relatively small drop in the wind speed (from Force 6-7 to Force 4-5) appears to have taken a lot of gulls back out to sea. There were still c 150 Great Black-backed Gulls along the west coast this morning, but this is less than half the birds seen while the wind was blowing harder. The same was also true this morning with Lesser Black-backed Gulls. The highlights of the session were nine cr Great Black-backed Gulls (four French, four Guernsey and one Jersey), and a 3rd calendar year Yellow-legged Gull.
