GLAUCOUS GULL - 2ND WINTER ACORDING TO MY HELM GUIDE
BELOW TAKING FLIGHT FOR THE 2ND TIME
BELOW BLACK-HEADED GULLWhilstsearching for the Glaucous I came across a single Sanderling which seemed tohave signs of oil on its underside. It didn’t seem to hinder the bird as it preened,fed and flew without any signs of a problem.

As I left alarge flock of Twite (some ringed) fed near to the Weld Road car park, I estimatednumbers of between 80 – 100 but have been corrected with a count of 122 byanother birder who was there at the time.
