The adult Little Gull that was seen on the Thames yesterday was still around this morning and put on quite a show with the Black-headed Gulls as it dipped down to the surface after floating grub. although it did not have a black hood it did have the making of a nice pink flush on the front. Cute bird.
Shots by Brenda Clayton.. note the solid black underwings with a white border and tips.
A single Wheatear was again at the west end with the pair of Black Redstarts and now a female Stonechat on the foreshore. There is only one Golden Plover left now and six each of Curlew and Ringed Plover came in at high tide along with 160 Dunlin. No new migrants but our Ross's Goose popped back in today for another visit!
