When I arrived at Deeping Lakes LWT this morning, a juvenile Mediterranean Gull was on the central ‘rock island’, found a short while earlier by my friend Will. It didn’t stay long, though, and departed east at 7.35am.
Other highlights here included a Greenshank, Water Rail and Cetti’s Warbler singing. When I got home, a Red Kite (with a heavily moulted tail) was flying low so over the houses opposite, it was almost touching the chimneys of my neighbours!
