Poor shots, I know (digiscoped from the road) but this Mediterranean Gull (centre of shots) was in the fields behind the hide this afternoon at 1.30 pm and was there till at least 2 pm though model aircraft flying over the back field put the gulls up and it went with other B H Gulls into the north field where I lost track of it.
It is probably still there but may have moved to other fields just down the road on the right towards Barkisland where farmers are collecting silage and the fields were full of B H Gulls etc.
It looked like a full adult but just starting to loose the black hood at the front and on the photo's looks 'masked'
I hope someone else can find it as well !

Well picked out with 1000 BHGs to look through. Wonder if it was the same bird NK got or possibly another.
