Bird of the day was an immature Caspian Gull on the river between Coldharbour Point and the stone barges. It was with many other gulls who were coming to the river from the adjacent landfill site for a wash and brush up. They never stayed long before flying back to the tip to feed. I spent an hour here watching and it was busy all the time with gulls coming and going, also saw two Yellow-legged Gulls. I struggled here trying to digiscope them without success, having been out for over five hours the cold had set in and I was shivering quite badly. I will try again with my DSLR maybe tomorrow!
At least six Song Thrushes around the woodland, with higher numbers of Blackbirds and just a few Redwings. Cetti's Warblers showed well near the feeding area as did the Brow Rat below.
