It was quite a sociable occasion at the gull roost this evening with Steve Jennings, Alex Martin, Gareth Blockley and a couple of other people all joining me. They were of course there for the adult GLAUCOUS GULL which duly obliged by turning up at aroudn 5:15 this evening. Apart from that there were a couple of 3w YELLOW-LEGGED GULLS but little else of note in the gull roost. Waders were well represented in the form of 5 REDSHANK, 4 DUNLIN, about 75 Golden Plover and about 100 Lapwing. On the duck front the 6 SHELDUCK were still about, a good number of PINTAIL and a few roosting GOOSANDER. With spring now around the corner we can start looking forward to the arrival of the Sand Martins in a couple of weeks time.
What a handsome beast!
