The Ross's Gull showed superbly on the water and in flight at Port Talbot Docks (between Talbot Wharf and Sand Wharf). The bird dropped in at 13:45 with black-headed gulls and spent 15 minutes preening and washing before heading off over the river and housing towards the beach.
The bird came in from the direction of the steel works where it has obviously been hiding since being flushed yesterday. It was clearly very nervous and deeply traumatised by the incident. I would just like to add my sincere disgust at the sort of low-life shit bag, scum sucking morons that caused such distress to so many and of course to the gull sp. We've left an effigy of the three of them on the gates of the dock. Please feel free to stick pins into them on arrival - the slightly strange arrangement of the figurines was Slappers idea and was inspired by a holiday in Thailand and something called a daisy chain.
