Pelagic working voyages interspersed with local patch and occasional twitch birding news

Another quiet day
A few very distant and therefore unidentifiable gulls were seen today. If I was a betting man I would log them as med. gulls but they were very difficult to I/D conclusively. On the migrant front another house martin spent a few minutes circling the vessel and interestingly I saw it catch a largish moth. Other than that the only bird seen was a nice white wagtail which alighted briefly on the deck before continuing its northward passage.
