Tophill Gull Massive and other things




Yesterday I went to Tophill to do some more dissertation work - no interesting birds on Watton - the Smew were absent but I did see somewhere in the region of 50,000 Common Gulls and 10,000 BHGs (but only 2 1st winter Herrings in amongst em). Amazing. Today ive been volunteering and have seen a Siskin on the feeders, a Barn Owl on the drive, a handful of Hare, Redwing, singing Song Thrush, Red-legged Partridge and a pair of Goosander. Have been sticking nest box cameras up today. Hopefully Tree Sparrow and Spotted Fly. Also helped with the moth trap and will come to that after.
