RE: Redgate Recycling, Gorton.


Mid-afternoon today.

An absolute mass of Gulls flying around when I pulled up for a break, making it impossible to pick anything out.
When some of them did finally land on the 384 roof, the immediate stand out birds were...
2 Argentatus Herring Gull
1 Black-headed Gull with full dark brown head and very bright red bill and legs

Stopped off here this afternoon after a quick visit to Smithfield Market.

Lots of Gulls, more than I've seen in a while, inc lots of Large Gulls c40-50.
Most of them mobile and hard to keep track of but of note that landed on the 384 roof...
1 Great Black-backed Gull
3 (4?) Argentatus Herring Gull

Looks like the same individual as yesterday.
Great Black-backed Gull just turned up too!

Plenty of Gulls present mid-afternoon but the main one of note was a superb and mean looking Argentatus Herring Gull.

1 Great Black-backed Gull again, showing its might against other Gulls and Corvids.
