Wintersett Roost Weds 18th Sept

Both lakes were covered tonight, with the totals being:-

Lesser Black-backed Gull - Country Park 855, Top Res 655, Total 1510
Yellow-legged Gull - Country Park 22, Top Res 9, Total 31
Common Gull - 3 on the Top Res
Black-headed Gull - c4000 on the Top Res.
A determined effort was made to find a Herring Gull in the CP roost, with just 1 immature seen early on. There may be more young birds still to be found, but no adults were seen.

In addition, 8 Black-tailed Godwits flew over the Country Park and left west over the Low Lake at 18.55 hrs.
