Arpley landfill site.

An organised visit today onto the tip was a frosty start but the morning sun soon warmed things up. It was nice to see some friends I have not seen for a while and it was nice to see a juv iceland gull that showed well on the tip pool.This bird was present on Richmond bank on last Wednesday. A 2nd winter iceland gull visited the Birchwood pool also seen by Pete. During the morning 6 adult yellow legged gulls and 3 adult med gulls was an excellent showing. One of the adult meds had an almost complete black hood.
