Another Trip to the Pond! ~19th October~
Anther trip to Fleet Pond after school today yielded me with 4 site firsts. The main attraction being the gull roost which gave me 3 new species to the fleet pond site list. Birds included a Great Black Backed Gull, Common Gull and a Herring Gull, nothing very exciting, but all three species are very unusual for the site! On the new cut back reed bed came my 4th first for the site, 2 Snipe. As far as I am aware only a 2nd record for the site after one 2-3 years ago in a similar spot. Best of all from this new reed bed you can get slightly better views of the Yellow Legged Gulls, of which there were at least 4 last night.
