Winter's last Vestiges

An Iceland gull was enjoying the free buffet at Cotesbach landfill site today despite the sunshine and unusually warm temperatures for the Easter Bank Holiday

Four Wheatears had also stopped off before continuing north. Also two Yellow and a single White Wagtail were feeding around the fringes of the flooded sandpit.

Gulls were still present in big numbers but most are now immature birds.
