Wintersett + Gull Roosts 10.12.16

8 degrees,  calm with 8/8 cloud.
Wintersett Res: Archie ringed 2 Mealy Redpoll and 12 Lesser Redpoll this morning.  A Chiffchaff,  a Water Rail and a singing Cetti's Warbler  were in the boathouse reed area.
Anglers CP Roost: Plenty of large gulls came in, but no notables were seen so a quick dash to Wintersett Res at dusk,  revealed a huge roost with  20,000 Black-headed Gulls and many big gulls, with lots arriving from Hampole Tip when it was too dark to for identification.
