Med Gulls (15th September)

Once back in Falmouth it was straight down to the patch to check the coastal stretch between Pennance and Pendennis Point.  Not much to mention as I didn't have long but I still managed to locate 7 Mediterranean Gulls covering 4 different age groups!  (1 1stCY, 2 2nd CY, 1 3rdCY and 3 adult winters).  Also about were 2 Whimbrel, a flyover Grey Wagtail and a Peregrine flew over clutching its feral pigeon prey.
