A very large number of gulls spent the morning in Solfach, feeding amongst the waves that were being blown high up the beach. Herring Gulls were by far the most numerous species, with around 1200 of them milling around, and a small number of Lesser and Great Black-backed Gulls were with them. Further out in the bay a feeding flock of smaller gulls was assembled comprising 400 Kittiwakes, four Black-headed Gulls and a couple of Little Gulls. Not many landbirds were seen, as the conditions forced most of them into hiding for the day, but 40 Chaffinches, eight Goldfinches, two Linnets, a Brambling and a Siskin were visiting the feeding stations, a Reed Bunting remained, and 15 Song Thrushes, ten Blackbirds, two Redwings and a Fieldfare were seen.
