c700 birds have amassed on the Freshmarsh over the last few days.
c100 loafed about in the BHGull colony within the enclosure....
But will they stay?
No they did not. The Terns formed a colony on Scolt Head Island as in previous years.
Also Blakeney Point Does not have a colony this year.

Much pairing and displaying.

So many Med Gulls to put them off.
Will they finally locate to Scolt Head....
