A good day
A 5 hour stint of determined gulling today produced a very satisfying haul of species . After the recent Caspian gulls at Arpley I thought I would give it a good go today to try and find one.
A 3rd w Iceland gull is probably the same bird that I id as a second winter last week. It was a lot closer today and the grey on the covert was a lot more obvious today.
A couple of 1st w Glaucous gull on the tip and birch pool were different birds and finally a 3rd w yellow legged gull capped off a fantastic days gulling.
A Green sandpiper flew over calling and showed well as it flew past. Probably it had been pushed off the mersey as the tide came in this afternoon.
The tawny owl was in its usual tree.
