Stranded FULMARS

Following some strong NE winds and a belt of heavy snow in the north of England and Scotland on Thursday 05 April, at least 5 NORTHERN FULMARS flew in front of the weather and became stranded inland. It included this individual at Wilstone Reservoir, Tring, constituring only the 7th ever record and my first HERTFORDSHIRE sighting. Allan Stewart and I retrieved it from the water after it became moribund and took it to St Tiggywinkle's in Aylesbury where it is now recovering well, alongside another bird found exhausted in Buckinghamshire
