the PEC had left us but we was in for a huge treat, we had missed a whooper swan at the warren but turned up anyway for the roost..
an adult YELLOW LEGGED GULL was quickly spotted and i got a short film.
but very quickly i noticed that large numbers on large gulls were dropping onto the deck on the flashes. the flock grew and grew as more and more birds piled in from the SW ( westwood pool???) the flocks of 20-100 were constantly dropping down between c7pm and dark, and just before we left i estimated an amazing 3000c gulls ( 2000 large, 1000 small) had decended upon the flashes
this video shows right at the limet of what i can take in that light, and remeber more gulls dropped in after this video was taken.
being the gull fanatic i am, i was scopeing through the flock all night, with great results.
10+ YELLLOW LEGGED GULL ( 2 1st win, 8 adult)
40c common gull
150c H gull (mostly immature)
1800c LBBG (mostly adult) ( including an intermedius race bird)
all i could say was what a spectacle at such a small place...
