The end of the month was relatively quiet but there were a few notable sightings. The main thing being the start of gulls gathering at the reservoir in the afternoons and the first returning Yellow-legged gulls of the summer. Some days John had 4 or 5 at a time.
Steve had a Great Crested Grebe and 45 Lesser Black-backed Gulls on the 18th.
John had up to 200 big gulls on the 20th including an adult Yellow-legged Gull. On the 21st 4 (or possibly 5) Yellow-legged Gulls - 2 2CY and 2 3CY. An adult was present again on the 23rd. At least 5 again on the 26th and then it went a bit quiet for gulls again.
