Upottery Airfield, Smeatharpe

A record of 6 Black headed gulls may not sound much for those watching a wetland/coastal patch but this is only the 3rd occasion i have recorded them up here. The usual 200+ Herring gulls plus 1 LBB Gull. 14 Golden Plover and a single Snipe and 3000+ Starling nearby on farmland.

Earlier in the week, the Little Owl showed briefly on the 25th, 41 lapwing on 24th and up to 40 Fieldfare and 10 Blackbirds feeding on hawthorns.
