Local Patch - 23/09/09: Little Gull

Spent four hours today in the vain hope of finding a mega passerine, but it didn't happen. I did, however, find a 'mega' gull - mega in the context of little 'ole Dunstable STW - a juv/1st w Little Gull ! This patch 'tick' only spent two minutes after discovery, in distant view, before heading off south.

A Water Rail on the scrape was another good discovery - this one actually flew towards the camera !

The pair of Ruddy Shelduck are still on site, despite spending the odd day at other venues such as Tring and Luton Hoo.
