No sign of the Med again at Wilstone but 2 BITTERNS roosting at WTR


Did the roost again tonight where an impressive 2,700 Black-headed Gulls roosted, as well as 103 Common Gull, a first-winter argenteus Herring Gull and a single adult Lesser Black-backed Gull but once again, no Med. A total of 56 Great Crested Grebes on Wilstone was the highest count this winter.

At WESTON TURVILLE RESERVOIR at dusk, 2 EURASIAN BITTERNS were seen (5.01pm onwards), a pale bird roosting just 75 yards from the hide and a darker individual in the reedbed opposite; also 5 Water Rails, 3 Little Egrets, 3 WOODCOCKS and a Common Snipe noted
