Ned Hill watchpoint

                                                     Juv LBB gull
                                         

                                             3rd year Yellow Legged Herring gull.
                                                                    Kessie


A busy hour at the Ned Hill watchpoint with a steady flow of gulls throughout. All the gulls were coming through the Causeway Foot col from Thornton Moor then veering SE  probably towards Eccup.
The YL gull , which still had some head speckling and and pale fleshy yellow legs looking like a 3rd year bird ,headed towards Mixenden then veered back SE to follow the other gulls. No sign of Wheatear  in the usual mowed field.

It's always satisfying when somebody else gets a good bird for the area - well done on the YLG!
