Ring-billed, Icelands and Slav Grebe - Llys y fran

Cracking session with Paul G. Paul was immediately onto a 3cy Yellow legged gull. We were then scratching around until gulls began to trickle in around 4 gradually increasing until we left around 5.15. From then on we had another 3 adult YL gulls. The Ring-billed gull. 2 Mediterraneans (adult and a 3 cy). 2 Common gulls, c6 GBB. With Paul adding 2 Iceland gulls (1 winter and a 3 cy). The pair of Peregrines appeared just before dusk causing panic with the male snatching a BH gull and carrying it up the reservoir. A Slav grebe was just out from the big fishing field before heading over to join the gulls. 2 Tufties and a male Goosander completed a brilliant visit!
