Gull dispersal

The recent trickle of black headed gull dispersing from their breeding grounds is now turning into a flood. Present at Tredegar House Lake yesterday evening were around 50 birds including at least four juv/imm birds. The adult with colour ring 25J9 is a banker for a Cotswold Water Park bird - will send to BTO but not confident of an early response if at all. Other interesting snippets in common blue, red eyed and blue tailed damselfly and a rather tatty emperor dragonfly.


  1. Looked up your sighting on and it does look like a Cotswold bird. There's a contact email address to report sightings on here
