torr res

3 med gulls in the roost this afternoon were the first I've seen here since December. Also the 2 wintering green sandpipers were still present, plus the greyish chiffchaff in the last copse before the reservoir. On plumage, this bird looks ok for tristis but rather lets itself down with its "swee" call!

Re: torr res

5 med gulls at Torr this afternoon; 4 headed off towards Chew before dusk, the 5th remained to roost at Torr. Nothing else other note other than the tristis lookalike.

Re: torr res


tristis giving collybita like calls seems to be coming the norm - both the birds at Chew at the moment sound similar to collybita.

See for a discussion, and examples.
