Common Gull

Report. Roger Lane. 18th October 2010

"Brief visit to Menabilly car-park, in poor light, showed 4 of the finch species John reported yesterday and a POSSIBLE Brambling or two with the chaffinches (but not sure, dull, 4pm). Seems to be a nucleus of Chaffinches, Greenfinches, Goldfinches and Linnets.
Down at Par Pool, one I was sure about, was my first COMMON GULL of the autumn, an adult in dark plumage. On the beach were many dark Herring Gulls and several Black-backed Gulls, suggesting a Scandinavian origin."

Thanks for the report Roger.
Have to have another look for the Brambling...still need it for a life tick.
