Last day on the patch for a little while - 2nd August 2013

 Adult Mediterranean Gull. 1 of 2 inc. a juvenile seen today
 1 of 3 Little Ringed Plover
Green Sandpiper flew west over the site 08.53
A touch quieter today at Brockholes, but still managed 2 Med Gulls present at varying stages of the day, a Green Sandpiper flew over the site, 3 juvenile Little Ringed Plovers including a new in bird (there is a pair that have been present for 3 days now and one of the birds has a tail feather out of position and hangs down). Gull numbers are on the rise with peak counts of 100 Lesser Black-backed Gulls and 168 Black-headed Gulls. There were certainly more Black-heads around, but no way of getting an accurate count other than those that were grounded during the early morning.
