October 28th

Braved the heavy rain and sleat this afternoon with little to show for my efforts. A drake Pochard was present on the main pool along with the regular 3 Greylag geese. Aside from the Pochard numbers of ducks and grebes seemed low. Gull numbers were building up already by 15:00, so a quick count yeilded 80+ BH Gull and exactly 100 LBB Gull. It would be interesting to get a more accurate estimate of the total number of gulls that are roosting/pre-roosting on the res at the moment, but this will have to wait for another day, as when the sleet turned to snow i got too cold to stand there any longer.
