Garden and gull roost


Well it was decidedly cooler and wetter this afternoon than of late and was perhaps an afternoon to be doing some chores around the house.  The local male Sparrowhawk raided the garden twice, and was successful at least on the second attempt (a House Sparrow was the apparent prey item).  Two Ravens unnerved the local Carrion Crows for a while, at least one Nuthatch was visiting the feeders and a couple of Siskins zapped over.

Later at the Pitsford Res gull roost the now regular Caspian Gull made a late arrival and spent much of its time washing detritus from around its beak and face.  Other gulls included 3-4 Yellow-legged Gulls and a 1st winter Mediterranean Gull.
