Med Gull

Second-winter Mediterranean Gull - red Darvic ring on right leg. No details read.
Disappointing on Orcombe today - best birds were 80+ Jackdaw, 4 Stonechat and 1 Stock Dove. Pretty dire really. Also c40+ Woodpigeon, c10+ Goldcrest, 2 Chiffchaff, 8 Skylark, 2 Bullfinch and 1 Kestrel. A steady trickle of Linnet, Meadow Pipit and Pied Wagtail early on.
Yesterday morning was a bit better but I only had time for a very quick look. Best birds were 5 Reed Bunting, 4+ Redpoll, 4 Swallow and 7 Starling.
Very little of note off Mudbank but yesterday c30/40+ Black-tailed Godwit and my first two Red-breasted Merganser of the autumn. Things can surely only get better this month....

Goldcrest - no Firecrests yet this autumn. Should have had at least one today really!

Two of four Stonechats that were all together on Orcombe today.
