The great northern diver was showing well this morning and was joined by a first winter iceland gull on no4 res. The great northern diver now present for 3 days seems settled. The iceland gull coming in for a quick wash and drink before it flew off south east after a 30 min stay. Picked up flying in by A.S. I only managed a couple of minutes view just as I arrived before it flew off. Adult med gull also today. Chris D reports the short eared owl and barn owl close by at burrows lane early morning. BH had golden plover south over the reservoirs early pm. Certainly a little purple patch of late locally.
Merry Christmas to one and all
