Stewartby Roost this evening

Unpleasant viewing at the roost between c5.35 and 6.08 this evening with wind toward me and gulls diagonally facing away.....nonetheless, I was pleased to find a winter-adult Mediterranean Gull, 2 adult Yellow-legged Gulls, 50+ Herring Gulls, a few hundred each of L B Backs and B H Gulls but only a few Gt Black-backs. Also present were a Kingfisher and the juvenile Common Scoter was still present.,,,,,,MJP

Two CASPIAN GULLS roosted last night
