Little Gulls galore !
Spent 11 hours in the field today - very good passage conditions with low cloud and overnight rain on a NE wind.
Little Gulls were the main feature with over 80 being seen in Bedfordshire, I had groups of of 4, 8, 9 and 14 through Broom GP between 0555hrs-1200hrs and 1330hrs-2020hrs. Other birds included 2 Arctic Terns, 2 Black Terns, two Grey Plovers, a Greenshank, a Turtle Dove, a Hobby and a Cuckoo. Other birds in the county today included 3 Garganey at Willington GP, an Avocet at Warren Villas GP and 60 Bar-tailed Godwits through Harrold Odell CP.
A good day to be out !
