Back down this evening, now that I'm starting to get into Gull's (it won't last), I thought I'd grill each and every one but its a bit daunting when they are all over the place. Tonights totals went something like this;
Black-headed Gull 170
Lesser Black-backed Gull 1 adult
Common Gull 30
Herring Gull 50 flew in together from the south, apart from 2 adults and a 2nd winter the others were all 1st-winter birds.
Other movers and shakers included 52 Teal, 2 Kestrel, 3 Ringed Plover, 6 Ruff (4 of which later relocated to the A1 Flashes), 1 Dunlin, 1 Snipe and 6 Curlew.
A tractor ploughing the field next to Stoneybeck Lake resulted in only 5 Moorhen of note.
