19 oktober 2011 - The best hangover cure.....

is probably not 3 hours at a rubbish tip looking at gulls....but that's what we did today. It all started so well with this Eurasian Sparrowhawk flying overhead.
But soon it was all gulls, including last weeks reported Iceland Gull, which was in fact some ugly, leucistic Herring Gull thing
It was nice to see a few Yellow-legged Gulls again (memories of several hundred in Dorset now seem a long way away!)





But best of all were the 5 Caspian Gulls, including this 1st winter with lots of attitude, always bossing other birds around, grabbing their heads and sometimes calling
 here it's sharing the rubbish with a 2nd winter







In total there was 1x1w, 2x 2w and 2xad
