Bonaparte's gull

An update - you may have seen that bonaparte's gull has been logged on sightings websites. Currently we have no more info at the Reserve so I assume someone saw it as stated on Watton Carrs (the Tophill Access Road) on their way home from site early doors and put it out.

As you can see from the prior posts - the gulls are racking up some impressive numbers now and there is a lot of fieldwork on the land around us - so the chances of this (and other stuff) will be high on the D reservoir roost again tonight.

The Reserve will be open until nightfall this evening for anyone wishing to try.

Sightings logged so far today - 3 crossbill South East over the Water Works at 10am, hobby hawking over East Pond with common buzzard.

The jack snipe wasn't seen til afternoon last couple of days - so we await news today.
