Elusive Meds

There are plenty of Mediterranean gulls around at the moment, but location of high tide roosts can be tricky on these neap tides.
There were nine on beach between wooden jetty and No.1 outflow, four hours before high water this evening. Unfortunately, the sand mason worms are not being caught on the dry beach yet, so gulls are following the tide in. This makes for difficult observations in evenings when sun is low.

There were also two out from the harbour mouth.
