Two visits to Wilstone were fairly rewarding today.
This morning there were two adult Great Black-backed Gull on the ice with two adult Herring Gulls. There were also small groups of Skylarks flying about – no doubt re-orientating after the snow.
This afternoon's gull roost also proved reasonably productive with an adult MEDITERRANEAN GULL swimming round in the newly exposed water. Also an adult Herring Gull – probably an argentatus = was present and two WOODCOCK flew over the car park while Steve Rodwell and I were in conversation (Roy Hargreaves)
