Keith's 1st W Mediterranean Gull was still at the pool - its central tail feathers are pure white making it distinctive if it moves around the county. Also a Whimbrel and 3 Redshank.

A few more migrants on this morning's BBS effort. The most unexpected was a female Whitethroat which showed well in an isolated bare bush high on improved farmland and was presumably a migrant grounded by overnight fog. Otherwise a male Pied Flycatcher, 2 Redstarts, 7 Willow Warblers and a House Martin.
