Cullingworth Gulls

Wednesday September 19th p.m.
  Th Gull numbers in the fields around Cullingworth continue to grow with large numbers
of LBB Gulls seen regularly in the field alongside of Keighley Road.They seem to gather
on sunny afternoons with their numbers swelled by BH Gulls. We tried to get a closer view
of them late this afternoon but as we approached they lifted leaving a dozen Mallards.We
walked on the footpath through to the field where they had moved to but again they
moved on.Difficult to see exactly what was in the flock  other than those mentioned and
numbers are my best estimate.
c150 - BH Gull
c50 - LBB Gull

Mainly LBB Gulls


  1. Nice one with the LBBs. It's been over a year since I've seen numbers like that, mainly due to Ogden being full to the brim.

  2. Cullingworth fields has always been a hot spot for rare gulls in winter.
