Upottery Airfield, Smeatharpe

Little sign of any migration. 5 whitethroats (2 adults + 3 juvs), chiffchaff, 10 stock doves and the little owl in its usual place.

Oddity of the morning was a juvenile LBB Gull flying South West - 90-95% of gulls in the Blackdowns are Herring gulls and the few Lesser Black backed we see are generally adults in mid-winter.
