Wintersett + Gull Roost 04.03.17

5 degrees with sunshine, scattered cloud and a southerly breeze.
Wintersett Res:  Spring arrived with the first singing Chiffchaff on the west bank,   A Water Rail was heard north bank.   2 Cetti's Warblers were singing:- west bank and boathouse reeds. 
Grey Wagtail 1 + 1 CHSF.  
WRes. Gull Roost:  per Steve Denny.  An adult Mediterranean Gull was the only notable.     400 Herring  Gulls.   2 Great Black-backed Gulls.  6 Lesser Black-backed Gulls  and  3000 Black-headed Gulls were also  in  tonight.
Chris Swaine took these shots of the boathouse Cetti's Warbler this morning.   The challenge is - Can anyone get even better pictures of this bird, without any twigs obstructing?
