Wintersett - Ice + Gulls 22.01.2023

Anglers CP:   Steve Denny @StevieD131

Not the prettiest 1st winter Caspian Gull I’ve ever seen, 

but it shows all the main features on the CP shallows this morning 

and a second bird on Wintersett Res.

Click on link below to see  Steve's tweet and video. 

This 2nd Caspian Gull appears to be the red ringed bird 

that has been at Sheffield and was at Old Moor 

a couple of days ago. Has a figure 5 (05?) and was apparently ringed in Holland.


Anglers CP Roost:  98% ice  

A juvenile Iceland Gull was in the roost from 16:33,
whilst the Red ringed Caspian Gull stayed all day.
