6th March - Mediterranean Gull

As I mentioned in my previous post, early March is MEDITERRANEAN GULL passage time in the county and sure enough just two days later one was found on the Meadow. Pete Roby visited the Meadow this morning and found a splendid adult bird though it soon flew off. Later in the day Peter Law visited and managed to re-find it (or another one) though that too flew off before I could pay a visit. I was left searching through the hoards of Black-headed Gulls in the evening roost in the biting westerly wind though to no avail.

Other birds of note were the usual four OYSTERCATCHERS and four SHELDUCK.
