Kirkby Pits 7/11/09

Yet another dip, this time for the drake Ring necked Duck (which had been there for over a week up to and including the previous day). No Caspian or Yellow-legged Gulls on the tip. Highlights were 150 Pinkfeet south, 9 Egyptian Geese, 3 Common Buzzard, Green Sandpiper, Green Woodpecker & Grey Wagtail.

Great Black-backed Gull, Herring Gull & Carrion Crow give a doll the eye

Practising with the Swaro AT80 HD and Panasonic DMC LX3.
I was quite pleased with this digiscoped shot of this 1st winter Herring Gull on the tip, taken at some serious distance. It's good enough to ID the bird & I should be able to get a record shot if I come across anything scarcer on the tip.

Great Mullein
