No not Chicagi as calam called it just Castle Lake where not only was the wind still very blustery but it also pushed a few squally and occaisionally heaver showers through as well.
Highlights from today;
Possible Yellow-legged Gull, present only until 09:20 and possibly the same individual seen briefly on the 7th.
After posting this picture on Birdforum there has been some doubt cast over its credentials as Yellow-legged Gull particularly concerning the amount of white in the wing tips. So what is it? Scandinavian Herring Gull is another possibility.
Canada Geese an increase to 109 today
Grey Partridge 3 adults escorting 8 juveniles below the hide
Ringed Plover 3 present though not together
Ruff 4 (one pictured below)
Green Sandpiper 1
Lesser Black-backed Gull 2 adults and at least 1 juvenile
Wheatear 1 on the southern wall (picture below)
Linnet flock of about 80
Also noted today was a small passage of Skylark, Meadow Pipit and House Martin.
Stoneybeck Lake was quiet with only 1 Ruff of note.
