Iceland Gull and friends


Eric Graham has been busy the last two days at Titchmarsh Reserve, Thrapston. Yesterday (12th) provided views of a Great White Egret, a pair of Egyptian Geese, a female Goosander, 150 Pochard, two Oystercatchers and three calling Cetti's Warblers. Today (13th) and there were two Great White Egrets, an increase of three pairs of Egyptian Geese plus a Water Rail and a Cetti's Warbler.

Eleanor today flushed two Woodcock from hedging at Blueberry Farm, Maidwell.

The gull roost at Pitsford Reservoir was productive this afternoon with a couple of cracking gulls in the shape of an adult summer plumage Mediterranean Gull and a stunning juvenile Iceland Gull, just rewards for the amount of 'blank' gull roosts at Pitsford this winter. Other birds there included the Slavonian Grebe, fifty Golden Plovers in flight and a Grey Wagtail.
