Wintersett update - gulls again!
The roost on the Country Park was excellent this evening;- highlight was this adult 'Kumliens Gull' (the lower bird in the photo with 2 Herring Gulls) which came in at 3.05pm and was present until dark. It's the same bird which was present a couple of days ago and looks very much like the Broomhead bird which was present to last Saturday. (hopefully better photos might appear soon). Also; Yellow-legged Gull 4 adults, GBBGull 577, LBBGull 1, Herring Gull 2214 (best count for many years), Goosander 52 and Teal 49.
