Little Reward

With a bitterly cold wind blasting in off the sea, and having forgetton to bring my coat, the only option today was to take shelter and slowly freeze solid beside the rifle range target. Before I lost ability to move at all, a first-winter Little Gull battled south through the swell. A minute later an adult followed and then another adult after another 45 minutes. Little Gulls are not quite annual so a good species to secure early on. A Kittiwake too moved the list on further with another three species needed to bring up the 50%.
