Standlake Pit 60: 19th July

Standlake Pit 60
2 Yellow-legged Gull: 1 near ad and 1 3cy. The 'usual' near adult plus a 3cy that dropped in with some LBBs.
1000 Starling: The starling roost at Pit 60 ranges from 500 to 1000k, the latter is probably an undercount. The roost has attracted a peregrine, once, and a sparrowhawk, once. The dearth of small raptors barring hobbies when newly arrived in spring is obvious compared to what I used to see in a fairly 'ordinary' West Yorkshire birding area.
