23rd August 2009

Overslept, so had to do my WeBS counts during the early afternoon. However, the lakes were surprisingly productive, especially Terry's Pool where a Teal, a male Pochard, a Tufted Duck and a Greylag Goose were seen, and a Chiffchaff heard. At Windmill Pool, another Tufted Duck and 64 Black-headed Gulls were seen, and a Willow Warbler heard.

P.S. After the counts, went to Upton Warren (Worcestershire) with John Yardley hoping to see a roosting Sabine's Gull. It had come into roost there for the previous three evenings, and I think one has also showed on all subsequent evenings up to the time of writing (27th - sorry this write-up is late), but the one evening it didn't show was this one - argh!
