Lee Mount and Ringstone

The first 'pinkies' of the season - many thanks to a call from Oxenhope via BS I mananged to get one flock of 42 high and totally silent yesterday morning at 08:25 >SE.
Masses of them have been heading into the UK from Iceland this last few days !

I checked Ringstone later on in the morning but could only find a Common Buzzard nearby and a Cormorant on the res'r though there were lots of B H Gulls I couldn't track down the Med Gull from earlier in the week - though it could still be around (?)
Also 80+ Lapwings
c30 House Martins and c12 Swallows briefly feeding over the res'r though they soon moved on.
