Little Gulls at Broom

Plenty doing on the home front but with the weather we're having, it would be rude not to pop out and see local migrants such as these four Little Gulls that were found at Broom this morning by Matt Burgess.  Cheers Matt!

Black Reds

Two great birds at the Lodge this evening.  I like Black Redstarts.

Uncommon Yellowjob

A recent venture to foreign lands of dragons, larva-bread and yellow mice-like birds that don't like their photo being taken - not whilst I was passing anyway.

Look into My Eyes

I love the variety of birds eyes.  How many can you identify?

Wheatears have Landed

Having found no Wheatears so far in the sheep pasture, I thought if I were a Wheatear where would I be so I tried the airstrip at Hill Farm in Willington and found three!

Local Jaunt

Nice to get out after another busy week.  The hybrid "white" goose was still with the Willington Barnacle Goose flock whilst break-away group of around 100 are at 100 acre field with the single Pink-footed Goose and a lone Egyptian Goose.   Linnet flock of around 40 near Octagon Farm.
Also nice to hear a few Skylark singing - it must be spring?
