Have had a break from birding lately a combination of ill health, work and family commitments but had an opportunity to get up to the patch yesterday to start my patch list
I was hoping to pick up some of the winter species that were present last year i.e iceland gull,glaucous gull,redwing etc.
So i scanned the gull flock which had the usual combination of black heads,common,herring,greater black backed gull,
other birds present were as follows
long tailed tit
But best of all as i was returning home there was a lot of gulls in the horse field opposite the island so i thought it was worth a scan and as i scanned through mainly black heads and common gulls there was a stunning adult med gull,these are really stunning birds only my second hear but with it being an adult it realy stood out from the crowd.
