Rivington Gull Roost (incl Med Gull)

Post by Neville Root » Sun Feb 28, 2016 6:21 pm

A visit an hour before dusk found the large gull roost at the dam end of the Lower reservoir before moving slowly en masse to opposite the castle folly. c.500 BH gulls, with 20 (probably more) common gull, 10 LBB gull, 1 herring gull and a Med gull (presumably the one seen regularly, with the white marking on the base of its beak). Also 1 cormorant and 3 oystercatcher flew over.

Mediterranean gull takes me to 85 for the year's Chorley species.
