Sprinkle Pill Gull Roost

There's often a fair gathering of gulls at the mouth of Sprinkle Pill towards dusk. Dominated by Black-headed and Lesser Black-backed, the numbers from a count a couple of days ago:

Black-headed                 497+

Lesser Black-backed       68

Herring                            11

Great Black-backed         8

Common                          1

Apart from the gulls a good number of Shelduck (71) were on the mud flats.
