Barton Med's.

A visit to Barton today to try and see the 2 reported American gulls,resulted in an unfortunate blank,but on the plus side i managed to see an impressive 17 Med. Gull's which comprised of 5 gorgeous summer plumaged adults,8 1st summer and 4 second summer birds.At one point there was 9 birds on view at the same time which comprised of 8 1st summer birds and a single 2nd summer.This is the most i have seen at any one time in the county,pretty good stuff and some compensation for not seeing either the Bonaparte's or Ring-billed.The only other highlight was some local Avocet chicks and an impressive sunset.
