2nd winter Caspian Gull at Trench Pool and Salop go top after a 1-0 win against Newport!
Mid-afternoon I had quick scan with my bins at Trench Pool and I was rewarded with a first for the site. A 2nd winter Caspian Gull was washing with 15 other large gulls. However, with in minutes a Buzzard flew over and flushed all the gulls over my house, NEE! Also on the pool were 3 Shoveler and 2 Goosander. I returned an hour for the gull roost hoping that the casp might return. There were already some 1000 Black-headed Gulls in with an adult Yellow-legged Gull, but they were up and gone when they were spooked by a male Sparrowhawk. Thirty minutes later, there were over 2300 BLG roosting and were still coming in. There were only 10 large gulls and with them was a 1st winter Caspian Gull! The light was fading and it never came close.

Continental Cormorant (sinensis) at Trench Pool. Is this the same bird that I first had at the sailing Lake last week and then Prisorlee Lake two days ago?
Here it is at Prisorlee Lake with 2 Cormorants
