Nice year tick today with a Grey Wagtail, only my second in this patch. Lovely little bird that I don’t see enough of lately. Fair few Pied, but as handsome as they are I do prefer their Grey cousin.
Lately the birding has been dominated by seawatching. This has generally been dominated by Great Black-backed Gulls interspersed with very occasional little black things steaming past that I cannot identify. Largely due to the distance rather than my inability to identify little black things that steam past, which is in itself quite vast. This is quite typical of my seawatching experience and I love it.
Let’s have a picture of one of them there gulls eh?
What a beast! Just look at the hook on it! Look at that mantle! Yummy!
