Little Gull, south beach

One of the little gulls still present on south beach today.  The bird was moving between the southern end of south beach and the harbour entrance, accompanying black-headeds.  No sign of a second bird though.  Also, checked for purple sandpipers shortly after highest point of tide and no sign of these, either on the wall or rocks adjacent to the pier.  Twenty or so turnstones there.  Nothing else apart from a grey heron out to sea, fighting its way in to the wind.
