20th October - Sightings

Fisher's Mill - GLOSSY IBIS (unringed 1st Win) till late afternoon the flew north presumably to roost(J Oates et al) Garganey still (J Oates et al)
Bassett North - GLOSSY IBIS (Ringed 1st Win) flew from Channel towards North Pit at 4.55pm (A Archer) A two Ibis day!!
Shustoke - No sign of possible Franklin's gull at dawn but most gulls had already left roost. Yellow-Legged Gull (ad) (L Johnson)

However possible Franklin's gull again this evening in roost but again not until light was almost gone (L Johnson, S Haynes et al) Bird has 'Obvious dark hood, dark back, looks short bodied and short billed'. Opinions are currently divided. Let's hope it returns in better light tomorrow!
