Back on the patch for the rest of the weekend after spending yet more time looking for the pond heron on saturday,this time with a loads of friends good to catch up,saying hi to everyone i left,glad i had seen the bird the day before it looked like a dipping weekend,i had had planned to go to dung but the wind was blowing a gale so head down to the POW for once it was opened noting to little gulls and the normal auks i left
sunday morning i headed to the patch and bumped into keith and dick who already been to the end and back noting a little gull and a all white bird in with the kittiwakes thinking now't of it i carried on birding, counting the razor bill and guillimots with most coming into summer plumage,at last i caught up with juv eider who is still hanging about along with the 1st winter med gull
