I've Been Here Before
After a brief visit to Leeds i decided a visit of Richmond Bank was in order. Again not massive numbers of gulls but enough to keep you interested. A juv Iceland Gull was present throughout the session.
Also present the obligatory Yellow-legged Gulls a very smart 4w and 4 adults.
A very deformed hook billed 1w Herring Gull was also noted and an adult bird though not quite on the same scale.
Birds of the day were 3 Short-eared Owls that flew over heading east calling, quite a sight.
