|An adult Lesser Black-backed Gull, with snow on the hill behind. Thought I'd show you a bit of snow in this post.|
Anyway, back to the main reason for this post and observing cold weather movements from me house.
|A trickle of thrushes going over included Redwing.|
|But, also Song Thrush.|
|Skylarks on the move.|
|Skylark was definitely the most conspicuous species on the move, with 330 seen in 3 hours of watching.|
|Golden Plovers on the move.|
|A total of 250 Golden Plovers were counted.|
|Lapwings were in short supply, with just 26 seen.|
Also, a single Bullfinch was seen going over.
|This Rook had some pigmentation issues in it's wings.|
Now, I know the photos are crap and I know I said the photos should be of reasonable quality, but I've decided to move the goal posts a little and if you can identify the birds from the pics, then it counts on the photo year list. After all, I will improve on most of them as the year progresses.
So, the 10km square photo year list increases to 45.
