Oxenhope revisited pm

                                 Gulls on the water, 2 Teal in the foreground
                                    1 of 3 Teal out in the middle.
                           Unusual for Teal to be away from the edges.
Oxenhope, B.O.G. members only.

With little time to spare late p.m. it was a quick dash to check for anything new at Oxenhope but the picture was much the same as yesterday but with the addition of 3 Teal out in the middle of the water.
The gull count was higher with around 460 Lesser Black Backed, around a third of these being juvs, 28 Black Headed and a single Herring gull out on the water at the south end which I was scoping from the north end, windy corner so could,nt tell if it was the Yellow Legged or not and no time to walk the length of the reservoir to check.
Nothing showing on the lagoons yet but will soon be filling up with non flying Mallards in eclipse and hopefully I,ll get a repeat of last years Green Sandpiper.

460 LBB gulls
1 Herring gull
28 BH gulls
3 Common Sandpiper
3 Teal
5 Curlew
+ same water fowl as yesterdays report.
