Lesser Black-backed Gulls return to claim territories

6th February 2010 – Fog E1
Grounded Migrants
The dense fog grounded a few thrushes with 12 Fieldfare, 10 Song Thrush and 5 Redwing logged..
At least 4 Little Egret continue to stalk the salt marshes and a single Raven was logged. The first wave of Lesser Black-backed Gulls have now returned to the colony to stake out territories.
Dawn over the island before the fog rolled in and a first-winter male Linnet.
