There was a decent gull roost on the beach at dusk tonight, mostly common gulls and a few black-headed. The light was canny when I got down there, so I had a scan through. I had just got onto to a nice adult Med gull in breeding nick when two fitness freaks ran onto the beach, through the gulls and back into the dunes (they appeared later trying to drag wights on ropes along the beach). Off course the gulls flew up and, most irritatingly settled further down the beach.
I would struggle to pick up a ring-billed at that distance, but I persevered with them until the light faded, finding nothing more of note.
92 Mediterranean gull
PWC Score: 114
