At College Lake this afternoon with Steve Rodwell, there was a single Dunlinstill present from last week. It spent most of the time on the east shore ofthe lake and difficult to see as it fed under bramble and in amongst flooded saplings. We couldn't see the Little Gull but as we were leaving we noticed 5 drake Goosanders had appeared on the lake.

I then went to Startops Res where the female Smew was still present in the ice free patch.

Finished off back at College to see if there would be a decent gull roost. The adult Little Gull roosted, along with c1000 B H Gulls and 112 Common Gulls (Rob Andrews).
