Hunt for the Thayer’s Gull

4th December 2010, London

OK maybe a grand title, but I am very much looking forward to the Gull Day at Rainham. With Dominic Mitchell of Birdwatch magazine we will be begin with a short introductory talk followed by a day of searching, learning and encountering. I’ll do my best to pass on anything I have learnt as well as the many mistakes I have made. The focus will be on discovery, on sharpening skills in ageing, on identifying and looking beyond the expected. With Caspian Gull, Yellow-legged Gulls (all ages) and Eastern Common Gull at least on the cards, never mind the chance (however small) of seeing the ‘Pitsea Thayer’s Gull’, it  should be lots of fun.

There are a couple of  places left, so let me know a.s.a.p.  if you would like to come, and not miss out!

Taking part: the Gull Master Class begins at 10 am and finishes at 4 pm. Cost: £40.  We will meet in the car park at Rainham Marshes RSPB reserve; warm winter clothing, rain gear and a packed lunch are essential
