On the way back (Kingfisher flew across the pill and landed on the mud) we were just about to look through the Gulls in amongst thje Cows, when they all flew - another Peregrine flew through! However the Gulls all flew over our heads and we were able to see at least 3 adult Mediterranean Gulls amongst them. At least 7 Little Grebes at Sherpa Marsh.
