Ross's Gull

I arrived at Lodmoor this morning only for the RBA alert to go off to say that the Ross's Gull was at Ferrybridge! A fairly rapid scoot over to Chesil and there it was..winter adult Ross's Gull! A stunning bird I thought! Managed to get a couple of other birders on it by passing on the message at Lodmoor which was nice. Another look at Lodmoor later on in a biting wind didn't produce the gull but a Marsh Harrier performed very well over the reedbeds, always good to see.
