Kumlien's Gull at Fendrod Lake

 A 2nd cal yr Kumlien's Gull was found by Terry Tovey and Kim Powell at Fendrod Lake, this afternoon. Terry first saw the bird amongst the gathered gulls that were coming to bread, just in front of the car park. The bird flew off towards the bay at about 16:50, but was not subsequently seen later at Blackpill
At Blackpill the adult Ring-billed Gull was roosting on the sea with about 200 Common Gulls. Not many other gulls at Blackpill apart from that, with a handful of Mediterranean Gulls being the best of the rest

At Crymlyn Burrows a 4th cal yr Yellow-legged Gull was near the river mouth, mid-afternoon.
