Yellow-legged Gulls at Trench Pool

19th-23rd January 2023

This 2nd winter Yellow-legged Gull I spotted on the first day and was still showing surperbly four days later

Once again Trench Pool proves to be one of the top sites in Salop for Yellow-legged Gull with as many as possibly six individuals in a space of four days. I Reckon that it’s probably the top site for YLG photographer also in the county with birds coming to bread and showing off at very close range. Unfortunately there was no Caspian Gull this time. My first morning, 19th, I scanned the pool and got onto a 2nd winter Yellow-legged Gull. However, it was later on in the roost that it was joined by 2 adult and another 2nd winter. The following day, the temperature had dropped overnight to freezing and the pool was 90% frozen over. As a result, the Lesser black-backed Gulls, the highest count was 150, gather in good numbers resting on the ice before moving on. And with them, I observed more adult Yellow-legged Gulls. It also appears as though the 2nd winter that I first spotted, might be hanging around as it was present every day. It was on the last day, 24th, there were single 4th winter and an adult. Other highlights on the pool included a 1st winter Common Gull. This was only the second record after 3 adults a few years ago. 4 Wigeon was also my second sight record after a male over 10 year ago. However, the main highlight was a male Peregrine, west over the pool making this first that I’ve seen in this area.

4th winter Yellow-legged Gull

Maybe up to 4 or more adult Yellow-legged Gull moved through Trench Pool

It possible that this 2nd winter Yellow-legged Gull might be wintering for the area repeating what an adult did a few year back.

Only my second site record weas this 1st winter Common Gull

Up to 7 Shoveler were present throughout the 4 days

There was only a handful of Tufted Duck

But only 2 Great Crested Grebe

Second site record were these 4 Wigeon

Managed to get a record shot of my first Peregrine for Trench Poool
