30th July 2010 Med Gull Arbroath

Postby joncook » Fri Jul 30, 2010 2:29 pm

Two Med Gulls on the foreshore opposite Jumpin Joeys at 1pm today, 2nd bird has a much more faded black cap. Could not refind it 5 mins later to show Bob McC, but got the photos to prove it!

Little Egret was found Tues pm by Eric McCabe with Herons to the right of Old Montrose Pier and went out on Grapevine, but so far as I know has not been seen since.
