White on cue!

Managed to get out to a few sites yesterday, the highlight was definitely this 1st W Kumlien’s Gull at Barmston… What a beauty. For a more in depth blog about the bird check this out... http://birdingfrontiers.com/2013/01/19/juvenile1st-winter-iceland-and-kumliens-gull-identification/

 Also clocked a D.B Brent and Brambling at Filey, 5 Med Gulls at Scarborough and 700+ Wigeon at Scraborourgh North.

All in all a good day for white wings!

Garden 2013

Almost one month into 2013 and the garden list is coming along nicely. The recent wave of cold weather has helped add Yellowhammer, Brambling, Fieldfare and Redwing to the list, which now stands at 33 (halfway to last years 66).

Starling Sturnus vulgaris

Blackbird... loving the apples

Fieldfare Turdus pilaris

Missile Thrush Turdus viscivorus
