The adult Mediterranean Gull roosted with two Great Black-backed Gulls (Pete Sofley).
The ringed 'Siberian' Chiffchaff at the outfall, seen today, seems to be a rather more classic tristis than the one previously photographed there. ( See January 4th and 9th Blog entries) per Dave Hutton. The bird which seems settled behind the Wincanton building was seen yesterday (Steve Cawthray). Also today, 12 Common Chiffchaffs at the outfall and 10 Bullfinches near the road bridge (Dave Hutton).
Otter Pool: 214 Lapwings, 42 Cormorants, inc a colour-ringed bird from Essex, first seen here on February 26th 2015 (Steven Pick).
