Tuesday 14th September

An early walk around this morning in light rain with the wind from the south-west. The Little Gull (juvenile) was still there though surprisingly elusive, it was difficult to find when it was resting on the water. Apart from that there were around 40 mixed hirundines, a couple of chiffchaff and a flock of c.100 Lapwing.
This evening the Little Gull was still present and showing well (if distant), when Steve Cawthray turned up we were talking about Hobby when one flew in front of us affording good views. The Reservoir was a little choppy tonight so not a great night for checking the gull roost.

Coleshill Quarry
A brief visit late on 5 Snipe, 1 Green Sandpiper, 2 Curlew and 8 Meadow Pipit.
