Morning visit before taking Lucas to football.

- 1st winter Caspian Gull briefly in the yard
(Definitely one of the birds from a few weeks ago)
- 1 Grey Wagtail
- 150+ Starling

Also a very interesting Gull that resembled an adult type Caspian, but in all honesty it could be the same bird I had last Sunday, a Herring Gull with probable Caspian genes.
I called early afternoon after football but I couldnt locate it to get better views or a decent image to compare it to last week.

Showed really well on the 384 roof, a cracking looking individual. It was present yesterday morning (as per photo) but I was in traffic when I spotted it so I didnt get the best of views.

I sent the sighting of what was thought to be N:35E from 15/01/22 to Tim Frayling with all credit going to Pete Hines and John Raynor for the find.
I couldnt make my mind up if it was a Herring or Lesser Black-backed Gull, I posted it as the latter with a (?) as I thought it looked a bit slight in structure, slim bill, and had an overall look of one.

Ive had a reply from Tim who thinks its a Herring Gull and it was ringed as one, as a chick, at Walney Island (Cumbria) 20th July last year. This is the 1st resighting of this bird.
I hold my hands up on this one, just proves how difficult they can be at that age.

Just recieved the ring info from the Lithuanian cr B H Gull today, which I got details on last week.. (27th Jan).

Ringed as a bird at least in its 3cy ( born before 2008) ! at Klaipeda, on the Baltic coast of Lithuania on 30th March 2010.

The bird has only been reported on 3 occasions since then, amazing considering its age. ..

18th May 2010 at Silute, Lithuania. 27 miles.

22nd Sept 2014 at Neuruppin, Brendenburg, Germany. 391 miles.

27th Jan 2022 at Redgates. 940 miles.

Info back from a Dutch cr B H Gull EFOJ seen on 27th Jan 22.

Ringed as a 2cy bird on the island of Griend on 20th May 18. Seen/reported several times since then but never away from Griend so 1st sighting away from there.

Info still awaited for the Lithuanian cr B H Gull also seen on the 27th.

Tuesday 1st Feb.

Pulled up for tacho break on way back from Liverpool this afternoon and not a single Gull on site. 45 mins later as Im about to drive off, best part of 300 large Gulls turn up from nowhere swirling around the yard and over Redgate Lane.

3 Gulls landed on 384 roof and one was a 1st w Caspian Gull but no sooner I had it in my bins, it flew off and joined the bedlam of birds.

Just to add - the 1st w Caspian yesterday looks to be the same bird that was present early January.

Unbelievable !!!
Its almost as if somebody flicked a switch and made the Gulls disappear.

2 visits this morning, not a single large white headed Gull in sight.
Of note
- 1 Redwing over
- 1 Grey Wagtail

Afternoon visit, usually a good time to view when the Gulls are left to their own devices in the yard.
8 large Gulls only, including 2 Great Black-backed, 2 adult Herring, and 4 immature Gulls that were merely silhouettes battling the wind.
How disappointing!

Afternoon visit.

Absolute shed loads of large Gulls, lots of Argentatus (25+) including this yellow-legged individual.
I thought the mantle was maybe a bit on the pale side but the primary pattern looks ok for Argentatus with much white on it.

Great Black-backed Gull black JE643 ringed in Vest-Agder, Norway 09/07/2010, seen at Redgate last winter also and seen back in Norway between now and then. Interesting to see where some of these wintering GBBGs are coming from.

Late post from early week.

I had a Black-headed Gull with a black leg ring but it was positioned in such a way that it was always obscured by the corrugated roof and I just couldnt get a good look at the code.
However I did manage an image which at the time I thought couldve been a T at the beginning, but nothing came up on cr-birding.
I took a chance on emailing the Finnish group to see if they could shed any light on the possible location of ringing and I got this reply from Jarkko Santaharju.

Pretty sure its the same bird. Weather, light and bird mobility playing a part in thinking there couldve been 2 different birds.
Certainly a different bird to the long billed individual a couple weeks ago.

1st winter Caspian Gull

Showing well late on, on the rubbish mound in main yard. Seemingly the most dominant Gull there. It was still there at 3.40pm when I went to MacDonalds in Ardwick with Lucas and it was still there at 4pm on my way back.

Also
- 2 Grey Wagtails near my car
- 2 Ring-necked Parakeets over

- 1st winter Caspian Gull
Sat on Stoodleys roof viewed from Hyde Rd, then landed on 384 roof for a few minutes then back again to Stoodleys, a smart looking bird.

The 2nd winter Caspian from yesterday was present a little earlier on Stoodleys but when they all took flight I lost it. I believe it has been showing well since though, info thanks to Steve Burke.

Literally just flew in and landed infront of me on 384 roof late afternoon. For some reason it reminded me of the bird I had here back in March this year, its face and bill look the same.

Xmas Eve.
Early afternoon visit on way back to depot for early finish.

Not too much of note apart from c50+ adult Great Black-backed Gulls, 2 Grey Wagtails, a Robin, and a distant Common Buzzard towards Openshaw.

But what I was impressed with was the number of large Gulls. Mostly up in the air circling very high at one point, but many came down on various roofs, probably around 300 birds or more.
