Iceland Gull at Eyebrook Res this afternoon. Saturday 6th December 2008.

After walking round Cossington Meadows I drove over to Eyebrook Reservoir to see if the long-staying Iceland Gull would come into the gull roost.
The majority of the large gulls took their time to come into the roost with the 1st Winter Iceland Gull arriving at 16.20pm. Slightly disappointing for the other gull watchers was the no show of the previous day's 2nd Winter Glaucous Gull in the roost.
Other sightings on the reservoir included 2 nice looking drake Smews which had arrived on the previous Thursday(via information from Mick Ketley!).
Hopefully before the end of the year Eyebrook Reservoir will have more white-winged gull sightings?
