More updates

An adult Mediterranean Gull was in the Stewartby Lake roost this evening, per Neil
Wright. A Short-eared Owl was hunting the old Sundon refuse site this
evening, at approx TL037287, per Chris Deary.

The best I could manage this afternoon was a count of 95 Common Snipe at
Derek Whites Eggs pit. Easily one of the highest counts in Beds over the
last decade.
