Glaucous gull: Knoll Hill quarry, February 1st – 12th still

The bird which showed so nicely at South lake before Christmas was found at the rubbish dump in Knoll Hill. These are instructions given by Peter Newbound (finder, after some excellent detective work):

“The Quarry can only be viewed by telescope from the public footpath in the NW
corner at SU814799. Access is from the A4 at the Seven Stars pub up Star Lane for 700m and then left along the Knowl Hill Bridleway Circuit up the hill for another 400m.
Star Lane is residents access only. Please park near the Seven Stars on the A4.
The gulls are feeding on freshly dumped landfill and are being constantly disturbed.”
