Bit of a breeze

Just back from the pond, which must have seemed more like the sea to its inhabitants. The wind was creating some substantial waves and spray, pushing most into the sheltered bays.
515+ Black Headed Gulls were all squeezed in the public hide bay, joined by 3 Lesser Black Backed Gull, 1 Great Black Backed, 3 Herring Gull, and 2 Adult Med Gull (one ringed). 33 Canada Geese, 2 Greylag Geese and the Bar-Headed Goose were also sheltering in the bay, also a lone Lapwing, a Pied Wagtail, 1 Grey Heron and 27 Jackdaw.

8 Pochard (5 male, 5 female), 10 Tufted (5 male, 5 female), 20+ Teal, and 5 Coot braved the waves.
