Prescot reservoirs,
8 inches of snow and the reservoir 80% frozen
A couple of common gulls of interest today.
A red darvic ring with white letter and numbers A325 was on an adult common gull. It was ringed in Germany between 2005 and 2007. I have sent the details to the ringer so hopefully he will get back with more info.
A leucistic 1st winter common gull looked very wintery in the blizzard conditions .
Also adult med gull, 2 adult yellow legged gull, 3 goldeneye, 20 tufted duck,2 pochard , 10 little grebe and 2 snipe . BH reports 7 golden plover earlier.

Two very different 1stw common gulls
