Soar Valley highlights August 2014


Here's a roundup of some of the stuff I've seen down the local patch in the Soar Valley over the last month. These have included the long-staying Glossy Ibis at Wanlip Meadows LRWT, the one day twitchable Great White Egret at Cossington Meadows LRWT. A nice looking 2 winter Yellow-legged Gull, and a Juvenile type Black Tern at Watermead CP South.

2nd winter type Yellow-legged Gull at Watermead CP South August 2014.

Here is a few shots of the recent 2 winter type Yellow-legged Gull at Watermead CP South, Leicester. It's quite surprising how small groups of large gulls seem to be attracted to Watermead CP South as this is probably the tenth time I have seen Yellow-legged Gull at this site.
Maybe it's something to do with people feeding the ducks there and the Gulls know there's a free meal ready for them?!
