Marston gull-fest.

There are a large number of gulls in the surrounding area at the mo,waiting for tractors to appear.This morning an amazing 1,000+ lesser black-backeds were resting and preening on the large field that borders the works track and the road.This field was being shallow ploughed.With the flock were at least 10 adult yellow-legged gulls.A peregrine flew over and shifted the lot of ’em.Great sight.It looks as though there is plenty of ploughing going to go on,so birds should be around for a while.The greenshank was still around.
