Patch Tick Brute...

This morning my grandma and me went to Seaton Common to try and shake off a bogey bird of mine in the form of Caspian Gull. Meeting up with Michael Murphy, Harry Murphy and Andrew Kinghorn, I was greeted by mist and thick fog allowing me no views whatsoever of any gulls. After about an hour of waiting for the fog to lift, I received a phone call from Alan Curry (never good if I can't get to St. Mary's quickly) telling me that he had found a Glaucous Gull on the rocks near the first car park. So a quick change of plan saw us getting some lunch at Saltholme then heading back for St. Mary's. On arrival at 3 o'clock, I headed straight for the gull roost where I assumed it would be, and after about 10 seconds of looking I found it, what a brute!! I was thrilled to re-find it and finally patch tick it! Dan McGibbon turned up soon after and also saw it, a lifer for him which made it even better!

    with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove
    me from that service? Appreciate it!
