Mixenden Reservoir

Mid afternoon in the pouring rain - sheltering under a pine tree. Juvenile Iceland Gull turned up again soon after I arrived. looked like the same bird as earlier in the week and roughly around the same time. Today arrived 2:45. Stayed to bathe with around 30 Black-headed Gulls then left in a southerly direction at 3:20 towards between Pellon /Mount Tabor.

Only had the bridge camera - these are the best I could do in conditions and distance.

Also present....
1 Grey Wagtail
1 Goldcrest 
6 Long-tailed Tits
No sign of the pair of Goldeneye that were there yesterday

Well picked up Dave - not easy in this weather.
Great to get a photo as well.
