Quick Evening Visit

8th April - I paid a quick visit this evening and joined 4 other locals on site for the last hour of daylight.

Highlight was a Yellow-legged Gull that appeared on the spit in front of the island at c7:30pm.  This is the first of these I have seen here for a while and appeared to be a 3rd winter type or possibly older.  Quite a small bird, so probably female.  The gull roost held about 300 LWHG, split equally between LBB and Herring Gulls, only about 20 Common Gulls and only 2 Black-headed Gulls! How things have changed over the past few weeks.  Otherwise, a single Redshank on the spit was the only other bird of note.
