Local Stuff and Old Moor

Started the day at Broadstones Reservoir finding plenty of Linnets and Goldfinch with the odd Willow Warbler and Whitethroat before moving on to Ingbirchworth Reservoir finidng a good group of gulls blooging along the shoreline these included Black Headed Gulls mainly with Lesser Black Backed Gulls mixed in and alone Herring Gull which was a 3rd summer bird, I tried getting a photo of it, I was  nicely lined up then off it went due to a very noisy 75 year pensioner making his presence known telling the whole world of the injustice he had had at the hands of the bin men, time to move on to Old Moor.
