Given the state of the tide last week, I watched the beaches rather than Chouet Landfill, so it was a pleasant change this morning to enter the landfill and see what was happening. The answer was a great deal, although the numbers of LBBGs have fallen significantly in recent weeks. There were still 400+ at the landfill, including 130 colour ringed birds, but the site is now very dominated once again by Herring Gulls (c 4,000+ present). Amongst the LBBGs was one of Mike Marsh's birds from Suffolk, England - Red FAF.U.
