Glaucous Gull again.

Had a site visit today so finished at lunch time so headed straight for coast, loads of waders about between Maryport and Allonby. Grey Plover, Golden Plover, Bar-tailed Godwit, Dunlin, Knot, Ringed Plover, Turnstone and Sanderling. Checked through the few gulls present nothing. Then just as i was about to drive away the Glaucous Gull flew past. Soon after Nick turned up and we went to have a good look at it on the beach. Great Looking bird.

Met up with Keith to cover Soddy and Derwent Forest, the two Little Owl were on the same building at Derwent forest. We moved onto Soddy flushed a few Common Snipe and eventually a Jack Snipe. A few Teal on the small bit of open water as well as a handful of Wigeon, Mallard and Coot. A Heron flew out the Reeds.
Finished with Owling, a Barn Owl was giving Brief Views, 4 Shorties were distant and i had to leave a little bit earlier tonight so there would have been more. 2 Raven flew over the site too.
