A Glaucous Gull was still at Donna Nook and a Iceland Gull at Manby. A Wow moment occurred when a male Hen Harrier flew through Manby which put up 13 Snipe.

It seems one of the two Stonebridge 2CY Glaucs is also paying visits to Tetney haven:

1st March - one flew south from the Tetney haven area. The following day the Stonebridge count had increased from one to two birds.

8th March - a brief and distant view of what looked good for a Glaucous dropping onto Tetney haven.

11th March - one flew onto Tetney haven having come from the south at 11.40 and remained there for at least 90 minutes.


Regards

Chris

One of the gulls did fly in from the NW on the 9th or 10th to join the other.
As Steve Lorand said there does appear to be three in the area with one at the South end also.
Just one bird noted this morning at DN.
