Local birding - 12th Dec 2007.

Above: 1stw Glaucous Gull - Whinney Hill Tip, Altham, Lancs - 12th Dec 2007.

Time spent on a very chilly day at the two local landfill sites eventually revealed both 1stw Glaucous Gull and ad Med Gull at Whinney Hill Tip, but both giving very distant views mid-pm.

c150 Pink-footed Geese flying west at 14:20 was a nice bonus. Neither of the Gulls were located in the Fishmoor Reservoir roost, but both would have inevitably roosted in my opinion.
