First HERRING GULL of the autumn period

Following up Andy Radford's earlier report, a visit to Pennstreet Farm revealed the presence of a 3rd-summer Argenteus HERRING GULL in recently ploughed fields just east of Penn Street hamlet at SU 925 960. It was consorting with a small group of 8 adult Lesser Black-backed Gulls and represents the first 'autumn' record of this species in my immediate Recording Area.

The fields also held 68 Woodpigeons and 5 Linnets (including juveniles)
