Despite the weather, it was a particularly productive day today with some great birds. First off, Steve Rodwell found a 2nd-winter LITTLE GULL on Marsworth (see DB's pic above), which remained long enough for several regulars to see it. At the same time, a MEDITERRANEAN GULL was present. Meanwhile, Dave Bilcock found 10 PINTAILS on Wilstone (just brief stayers), whilst the WATER PIPIT was showing well by the Jetty (see Dave Hutchinson's image above). Paul Reed had 2 additional PINTAIL on College Lake WWT, where also 3 Common Redshanks were present, whilst DB located 2 DUNLIN on the Pitstone Industrial Estate scrape (which flew off shortly later).

In the evening, Dave Bilcock and I did the gull roost, where I located an adult summer plumaged KITTIWAKE and Dave 3 MEDITERRANEAN GULLS - two breeding-plumaged adults and a second-winter.
