Yellow-legged Gulls

Lots of Yellow-legged Gulls have been roosting during the day around the new 'swan' roundabout at Kempston. Only a handful of Herring Gulls are with them. Out of the 59 'herring gull' types there on Saturday afternoon, over two-thirds of them were Yellow-legged Gulls. The top shot shows a juvenile YLG, one of three amongst the flock on Sunday.

Breeding Red Kites

Red Kites are still rare breeding birds in Bedfordshire, however they are slowly filling in after birds have bred in the north and south of the county. These are in mid-Beds. Two chicks have been raised from this nest and have fledged in the last few days. Photos thanks to Tony Squire.
