27th May – Black Guillemot duffs up Lesser Black-backed Gull

The latest news from Tony is of a Grey Heron and two Dunlins on Wednesday 27th May, which was also notable for an entertaining encounter between the long-staying Black Guillemot and a Lesser Black-backed Gull. The Black Guillemot was "making aggressive postures at the gull and being ignored, till eventually the guillemot marched up to the gull, which flew off. The guillemot was finally able to settle down on top of its favourite rock and enjoy the morning sun."
