I have been contacted by “The Captain” to say he has had a 1st Summer/Winter Little Gull at Shustoke Reservoir. Let us hope it is there after 5pm for those of us who have to work for a living!!!

Got over just in time as 15 minutes after my arrival the Little Gull flew off high. The weather was poor, plus Severn Trent or rather their associates were working on the reservoir replacing the green floaty things that are strung out across the east and west ends. A little bit late really as the Grebe and Coot had already started to use them as nesting sites. However, not to be too down about it, the new ones look larger and more sturdy so they may have more success in the long run.

Today Thursday two Arctic Tern (J Harris, B Duckhouse). Also a report of one yesterday.
