Undoubted highlight of the Wednesday Walk today was this diminutive Little Gull that delicately bounced around Aveley Pools in the company of some much larger Black-heads. The dark markings in the wings tip and only partially black underwings aged it as a second year.
With a Black-headed Gull in both these shots by me!
Waders much as yesterday but now three Ruff and a single Yellow Wagtail was the only flyover migrant. Lots of Shrill Carder and Brown Banded Carder Bees around the trails today which is very encouraging.
