I have seen a few lesser-black-backed gulls this week, with my first on Sunday 9th, the same date as last year. They may not be as obvious a summer migrant to most people as, for example, a swallow, but they are pretty much the earliest. They only have to migrate up from North Africa: their arrival with this spell of warmer weather from the south is probably no coincidence.
