Black-headed Gulls are now regular through the summer in the Lee Valley with breeding at Rye Meads and Cheshunt. The nesting at Stockers is part of a wider trend rather than exceptional, BHG are also nesting at Hilfield Park Res this year.

At Rye Meads today there were 19 pairs of Black-headed Gull with c20 prs Common Tern, 225 Gadwall (plus 4 broods), 4 broods of Pochard and a brood of Tufted Duck. Also 3 LRP and a Green Sandpiper.

At 70 Acres Lake (Cheshunt GP) there were 2 pairs Black-headed Gulls, 28 prs Common Tern and 2 broods Gadwall (Graham White)
