Herring gulls on the move. Leeshaw res

          Some dropping onto the water briefly
            One of 2 Common gulls present.

                                by Mick Cunningham.




  Very young juv Black Headed



Leeshaw res this morning was quiet with most of the waders moved on now but the watch was saved with a spectacular move of Herring gulls >NW. Some of the gulls dropped down onto the water briefly before moving on whilst others were very high and distant.
A single Black Headed very young juv flew in with a flock of Herrings and stayed on the water.

Lower Laithe was void of birds other than an unusual sight of a Dipper flying over the water whilst Fly Flatts just held the usual Canadas and Mallards with a high count of over 300 Canadas on the water and several more on the surrounding moors.
