The floods are getting bigger by the day and are now looking great. The gulls seem to think so too because they actually decided to stay put this evening in good numbers with a couple of adult YELLOW-LEGGED GULLS the pick of the bunch. The bird of the day however was a lovely JACK SNIPE that James Evry found, actually out in the open working its way along the line of dead Dock plants on the West Shore. Usually this species is only seen as it's flushed so it was great to actually have a look at it though by the time I'd arrived it was rather gloomy so I didn't bother with a photo.
