Med Gulls

We took the dogs for a good walk today leaving the car at home again, that's what I love about Corton you can just walk for miles in any direction. Today though we took a route through Corton Wood along Gunton Cliffs, Lowestoft Promenade to Ness Point then back along the beach home.
A nice chilly walk in the beautiful sunshine. The morning produced 14 Med Gulls with 3 ringed birds, 8 Adults, 4 First winters and 2 Second Winters.

8 Purple Sandpipers were roosting up at Ness Point, there could have been more as they were all roosting on the seaward side of the rocks and could only been seen occasionally as they moved.

On the return lots the Med Gulls showed nicely.

Great Crested Grebe flew South giving a Red throated Diver head cock, and 3 Red Throated divers passed distantly. A Kittiwake was a year tick as were the Med Gulls. An Adult Lesser Black Backed Gull posed for me.

Back in Corton Woods I finally found a really nice Firecrest in the Holly in the North end, although im pretty sure I had a second one too. A Tree Creeper was the last bird of the morning.

Lovely walk from the house.
