No sign of IGs. Now only 5 Herring Gull and a LBB at the floods north of Compton, and nothing on the original ploughed filed north of the A34 or Churn road, Compton as far as the gallops.

1w. In gull flock roosting on field drilled this morning by gallops at top of Churn road up from Compton. Note my photos (17th March) in photo section show three Iceland gulls in the flock! There have been a few years with three recorded in the county and one with four (2005) but I don't think three together in one place?
