Dead gull provides birding highlight

An hour's walk around the Hackney Marshes/racecourse area first thing this morning was disappointing, with just a Wheatear, a Blackcap and nine Chiffchaffs recorded in terms of migrants. On my return home I noticed what appears to be a dead 2cy Herring Gull on my roof; no obvious signs of injury so I assume it must have been a sick bird. Removing it will provide a diversion at the weekend if the birding is slow.
