on 3rd i found a first-winter caspian gull on the sand at the west beach at low tide. it was colour-ringed (seems to originate from poland). next day i returned in the morning and was surprised to see the bird was still present! hit reverse and burned it to the nearest shop to buy a loaf. managed to pull in most of the gulls in the area but the caspo stubbornly remained at the waters edge. looked a bit ill actually, or maybe just depressed cos it had landed in newhaven.
