Bonby, 23rd May 2013

It's getting inevitably quieter on the gulling front, with the only highlight over the past few weeks being a new 3cy Med Gull on a visit to the home county's first breeding birds.
But a return to Bonby this week revealed yet more slurry-spreading in the field on the wolds, and 1,000+ big gulls commuting between there and the still flooded carrs. The flock was roughly divided 4:1 in favour of Herrings over LBBs, and at least 75% were 2cy birds. After several thorough checks, an early morning visit finally turned up the goods with a big 2cy Caspian Gull, all worn and messy as expected.

  1. Hi Tom,

    Do you think this could be this bird?
