More Local Stuff.

White Stork on the way to work again, one of the Thrigby free flying birds probably.
Back on patch Saturday was very quiet in the rain, a Colour ringed Greater Black Backed Gull Black JC003 I think from South Norway. There were still a few Redwings around.
Sunday the weather has been superb so it was nice to catch up with a few nice year ticks, 11 Swallows, 75 Sandmartins to lunchtime, 3 Sandwich Tern and 2 cracking Yellow Wagtails. First thing I  had a short tailed lark that could only have been a Woodlark, unfortunately it didn't call as it flew south so could 100% nail the id..Other birds moving were Meadow Pipits and Linnets. A Drake Shoveler was a bit of a surprise sat out at sea. Fulmar made an eye level pass along Corton Cliffs. 3 Sparrowhawks were displaying distantly.
 I then spent the afternoon in the garden taking a few pics of the common stuff and hoping for a flyover something but it didn't really happen.
