Prescot reservoirs,
A juv/1stw iceland gull was on no4 res today, the second one this year. It was first seen yesterday by BH. A very white winged bird and it has a damaged tail making this bird easy to recognise if it turns up anywhere else. A dark eye and juvenile marked bill ages this bird even though the plumage is very bleached out.
26 goldeneye, 32 pochard and 16 oystercatchers also today.
