   A quick visit to Severn Beach last night saw a very strong wind, and some Seabirds. So this morning i tried the same. There were quite a few European Storm-petrels around, 4 Arctic Skuas flew high over our heads and up over the bridge. A friend said he thought he had an odd looking Kittiwake out on the river, we all began to look, then the shout went up 'Sabines Gull'. A smart looking Summer plumaged adult bird, which sadly didnt really come in close enough for photos. But, what a cracking bird.
