Where are the Little Gulls?

Heysham Obs
Some lengthy observation by Ian Walker failed to register any of the usual gale-blown staple diet after the turn of the year - a chunk of the north Irish Sea Little Gull population.  Thanks for the records Ian.

Coastal areas late morning
Shag - 1CY in harbour
Med Gull - ad Fishers roof
Kittiwake - ad in harbour - 3 ad offshore
Eider - c120

Late news yesterday included an adult Kittiwake along the north wall and a flock of 50 which were blown into the bay off Carnforth Marsh
