Record broken (à la Bob Beamon)

Strengthening SW winds with heavy rain in morning, brighter later

Red Nab area - early afternoon towards high water (PM)
Mediterranean gull -  At least 107, possibly 117, with at least 4 juvs and plenty of all three other age classes, especially adult (50 plus) 
The previous high count was yesterday's 83. When Bob Beamon smashed the world long jump record in 1968, it stood for 23 years! So, perhaps not a good analogy - we'll see.

Common tern 1 adult
Arctic tern 1 adult
