Soggy fields attract Med gull...

A great deal of water but few birds of note...
Highlight was an unringed adult Med gull amongst approx. 60 black-headed & 24 common gulls feeding in wet fields at Aldcliffe this evening. The nearby Flood really was, well, a flood.
A single green sandpiper was flitting around the Wildfowlers' Pools and a pair of teal were new in here. No sign of the garganey pair anywhere.
A shoveler was on Freeman's Pools.
2 ravens were wreaking relative havoc on the marsh.
