GLAUCOUS still present

The juvenile Glaucous Gull was in the roost again late this evening at Stewartby Lake where also an Oystercatcher was on the yacht slipway and a drake Scaup swimming and diving along the same shoreline.

In the middle of the day, Di and I saw flocks of 20+ and 40+ Lesser Redpolls at The Lodge and in the porch to the Osprey Building were 2 Dotted Borders, 1 Yellow-horned and 1 March Moth.

Around 1.45pm there were no Waxwings in the vicinity of Bedfordshire Growers north-east of Biggleswade (M J Palmer)
