I,d say it was a 1, possibly 2 CY Great Black Backed. Correct me
if I,m wrong gull team.
A very quiet visit to Fly Flatts today with 80 % cloud cover and a moderate SW>4.
Just 2 Pied Wagtails and a Common Sandpiper on the south shore followed by an empty west bank. The east bank held around 30 Lapwing along with 30 + Black Headeds whilst the only Lesser Black Backed seen flew over into the wind >SW.
The north bank had the 3 Teal present in their usual NW corner and what I suspect as a Great Black Backed gull was way over towards the NE corner resting on the sand like a beached seal and reluctant to move. Hirundines and Swift were moving >NE with several House Martins in with the Swallows but no Sand.. Otherwise just the usual species present and July gone with still no Wheatear, thats got to be some sort of record.
July recap at Fly Flatts....................30 visits during the month missing 2 days but more than 1 visit some days.
Lets see what August provides.
