The original plan today was to have a gentle walk with the ladies of the house, but both were feeling under the weather this morning. I was told to go and enjoy myself, so off I went to Shawell for a few hours.
The tip was shut today, so although there was a lot of gulls there they soon disappeared when some lovely person started shooting.
Anyway I managed to locate the adult and the second-winter Glaucous Gulls and also a welcome Green Sandpiper. After leaving Shawell I had an hour at Brascote Pits where the highlights were a drake Shelduck and a Woodcock.
Enjoy this video of the two Glaucous Gulls:
Enjoy your birding in 2019!
