Gannet special

after a day of north-easterlies on the 23rd with not a single Gannet today made up for the lack of that species with 108+ at the bridge this morning; a juvenile Little Stint was a second overdue addition but a juvenile Sabine's Gull was only the second patch record following  a juvenile on September 13th 1993; today's bird quickly moved out into the murk of the Humber and disappeared before providing a photo opportunity ( and I still have not had a Kittiwake!); this takes the patch year list to 172 and the Scunny list to 196 but the latter should perhaps be 197 taking into account the fly-by Pec Sands at Alkborough this afternoon -- surely they will get tied down before long but with easterlies prevalent the patch is likely to miss out for the next few days
