The Gann

Quiet really, just a few points of interest more than anything else, what sounded like a Lesser Whitethroat singing at Crab Hall (from Pickleridge) though frustratingly masked by passing traffic - I stopped for a few minutes on the way back home to listen for it but was met with silence.Whimbrel calling, a pair of lingering Teal seemed comfortable causing me to speculate on whether they would/could breed (also one of Brian`s thoughts too) 5 Redshank, 1 Greenshank & a Wheatear.
What did get me thinking though was this "Light" LB Gull, stuck out like a sore thumb at the footbridge, brought back memories of one at Marloes Mere 9 - 10 years ago that turned out to be a possible long lived bird from Caldey Island or something along those lines.
