The highlight was another early summer visitor returning, a chiffchaff, picked up by the entrance to the Budge screen, it wasn't calling, just flitting through the bushes until it was chased by two blue tits.
There were lots of black-headed gulls on the Budge fields, but sadly no sign of the med gull reported here during the week. Offshore, tow year ticks came in the form of a single kittiwake and a pair of fulmar which were doing some strange courtship thing. I am away all next weekend so hopefully will get out during the week.

They've nested in the shelterbelts for the last two or three years, you don't see them that often though....now is a good time
