Yellow-legged Gull

First stop this morning the ARC found 30 Willow Warblers between the car park and water tower which bode well for the trapping area. A Peregrine flew through the pit scattering all the birds on the islands. At the south end the Goosander was still present. Expecting plenty of migrants round the trapping area i was surprised to only find 3 Willow Warblers in as many hours and little else. News from Mark of Cory's Shearwater west past St Margarets had me join the locals sitting at The Point expectantly although the Shearwater did not oblige an adult Yellow-legged Gull did and performed for the camera 

Back at the ARC this afternoon highlights were 2 eclipse Garganey, 2 adult Little Gulls, 10 Little Egrets, 26 Golden Plover, 2 Redshank, 6 Green Sandpipers, 3 Common Sandpipers and 5 LRPs including the 2 fluff balls.
