28th March 06 Prescot reservoir An adult KITTIWAKE was at Prescot reservoir today. BH found it on no4 res at midday and a text from Bill had me rushing up to the res to see it on the causeway where it had settled . It had it's head under its wing but it's short black legs and solid black wing tips giving it away. When it did lift its head the yellow decurved bill was seen. This is only the second record of kittiwake at prescot res so this was a very welcome bird.
