17 October - CASPIAN GULL at Amwell

A first winter CASPIAN GULL was in the roost at Amwell NR tonight from 18.10 until dusk (18.30) - it was on one of the little islands towards the Gladwin hide - generally a rather meagre roost tonight, with only about 200 large gulls present.

Also at Amwell today;

3 Red-crested Pochard (2 female types and a moulting male, on Hollycross pit)
At least 6 Mandarin Ducks (including at least 2 males)
1 Pintail (eclipse male)
2 Brambling - overhead
5 Redpoll
10 Siskin
25 Fieldfare

On Wednesday Bill Last had a flock of about 15 TREE SPARROWS in a maize filed on the valley sides adjacent to the pit - had a good look for them again today (also looked yesterday) - but no sign - just 1 Brambling (Barry Reed).
