Birchwood pool,
A gull looking very much like a sub adult caspian gull was on birchwood pool today and was followed by a superb juv iceland gull. I saw 3 adult yellow legged gulls but TC had 7 ylg of various ages. TC had an Adult Kumliens on richmond bank earlier and a juv glaucous gull on birchwood pool which I just missed.
A big increase in gull numbers today compared to the last couple of days. Possibly 30,000 gulls in the tip area today. An impressive sight when they have flushed and the sky is completely filled with gulls.
