Pitstone Quarry

At Pitstone Quarry this evening the GARGANEY and 2 PINTAIL (1 eclipse drake and female) were in the Herts section. Also on the pit were 12 Shoveler and 9 Little Grebes. I was about to leave when Mike texted to say the Wilstone Mediterranean Gulls were heading my way, so I waited around in the hope they would drop in. They didn't, but 200+ Canada and 60+ Greylag Geese arrived, along with 100+Mallards. I dashed over to College lake where another 100+ Canadas were just leaving but no gulls had dropped in here either. Startops and Pitstone Hill were devoid of birds before work this morning (Rob Andrews)
