Gull Roost

26th January - I ventured down for the gull roost this afternoon.  The 3 drake Pintail remain.  There were good numbers of LWHG to look through, but only small numbers of BHG/Commons, which had maybe already departed to another roost site.  No hoped for white-wingers tonight, but a nice 1st winter Caspian Gull.  This is the same bird as seen last week, but not the previously regular large male.  It is a smaller bird and has very obvious regular largish dark diamond marks on the scaps.  It never comes in close when the light is reasonable for a photo, so I still haven't got a record of it yet, but if it stays regular, hopefully I will soon.

A Little Egret appeared in the island willow late on and a Green Sand called when it was too dark to see it.
