So no blog for past couple of weeks, that's just because ive seen no birds, and its not for lack of trying either.
Today however things hotted up just a tiny bit with a female type Marsh Harrier distantly from COSW.
Chiffchaff was singing away and 2 Common Whitethroat.
Got around to the NSW where a juvenile gull stuck out. My impression was a Yellow Legged Gull but a very subtle one not like the striking white headed individuals I normally see. So I took a few picks and checked when I got home. Sent it to a couple of gull experts who were fairly happy with it being correct. Although the pics weren't great.
I'd expect a YLG to show some replaced scaps which I couldn't see, although its possible that it didn't have any,- on structure still most likely a YLG.
