Local Catch up

Well what can i say, its been and awful few weeks birding on the patch made worse by the car dying preventing us from leaving the village except by foot. So we have taken the opportunity to do some local birding Corton and Lowestoft. Like i say its been terrible though with very little seen although time of the year would explain the lack of birds.
Med Gulls have been the main birds on the agenda with plenty of  Adults both from the COSW and Corton Beach.

Warbler wise and Young birds are plentyful on the patch, Lsr Whitethroats, Chiffys, Bullfinch, and Tree creeper.
Out on the Sea Common Scoter numbers are increasing, 100+ on some days. Common Commic and Sandwich Terns seen when time spent seawatching.
The moths have kept my spirits up luckily and june and july have been a great couple of months but i wont bore you with the details. Unless you want to see some pics on my flicker site,
Thats it for now, hopefully a new car arrives next week and i can actually leave the area, it feels like an age, how reliant we are on a car to explore further a field and ive missed some of my Favorite haunts and some good birds too.


  1. Great shots of the med gulls Craig, its a while since ive seen one.
    All the best, Gordon.
