Wintersett Iceland Runaround 21.01.14

Frosty and bright start,  clouded over by mid morning, light south easterly.
Highlight today was a 1st W Iceland Gull  in WRes roost at 15.10 - 15.20hrs (PS).  By the time I arrived it had left.   Jonathan picked it up at Pugneys around 15.40 (see picture on @jonnybirder on Twitter).  He phoned shortly after to say it was on it's way back towards Anglers but a quick dash round proved fruitless.  Then a quick return to check WRes again also drew a blank. 
Bamf them rang from Anglers to say an adult Iceland/Kumlien's had dropped in at 16.50 hrs.  Back again to Anglers, but by then was too dark to pick it up.     Ah well - always tomorrow.
Wintersett Res:  The 2nd W Caspian Gull was on buoy number 3 on WRes at 15.12hrs.  The Cetti's Warbler and a Water Rail were heard on west bank marsh.
Anglers CP:  Teal 35.   The adult Yellow-legged Gull was in the roost.

Thought you'd taken Pete shopping when I read the headline.
