Bowling Green Marsh

This evening there were at least 8 Mediterranean Gulls (5 f.s. and 3 s.s.) in with c.800 Black-headed Gulls on the edge of the main pool, at least 1 f.s. Common Gull and an ad. Lesser Black-backed Gull. 8 Whimbrel, one Lapwing and 8 Bar-tailed Godwits present. Off the viewing platform a drake Scaup showing well on the very high tide was unseasonal to say the least (but perhaps it was one of the 7 birds off Mudbank Lane, Exmouth in May).
