All about a Gull!

When I managed to get my self out this morning, I looked over to the cow shed to see one of the Cattle Egrets on the roof, then I drove the short distance to Scotney GP where 1w drake Scaup and the 2 Black-necked Grebes were showing quite well at the Sussex end. At the Kent end all the usual feral Geese and 100s of Wigeon.
On the reserve from Dengemarsh hide 3 Marsh Harriers and a Great White Egret of note. Another 2 Great White Egrets from the entrance track. From Dennis's hide 2+ more Great White Egrets, a red head Smew, 5 Goosander, 2+ Yellow-legged Gulls and a superb 3w Caspian Gull sporting what looks like a Polish yellow colour ring PRZC.
