On a short walk round Southlake today I was surprised to see that there was still a patch of ice on the lake and lots of gulls had gathered on it. They were mostly Black-headed Gulls but there were a couple of Herring Gulls and one Lesser Black-backed Gull. The lighting was very odd but I took a few photos of the gulls and their reflections in the ice.
There were also a few Gulls out on the water, including this Herring Gull which came quite close to the lake’s edge, and a Moorhen having a preen on the perching branches.
Overhead, several Red Kites were circling.
