Best flight over of Gulls last night for quite some time at least 400 over maybe a lot more.
Mostly large gulls but 4 very large gulls couldn't say what species as light was very poor

Just wondering does anyone do any gull roosts at either Edgbaston or Bartley these days.

Forgot to mention at least 12 swifts still around and the pipistrelle bat colony seems to have grown to around 20 bats these days

A gull over this morning looked different from the normal fly overs
It appeared to be larger than normal with a more direct flight.
Any identification would be great please?
