Santa Glauc’s pays a visit

Our present this evening courtesy of Martin was this glaucous gull – likely a different bird from last weeks:

From the other side of Europe was a mediterranean gull last night – pictures on Martin’s site here.

Elsewhere over the last couple of days were the first brambling to be mixed in with the car park flock, hopefully keeping out the way of this sparrowhawk claiming another victim from the feeders:

A record tumbling 118 eurasian white fronts were present on Decoy Fields yesterday along with the greenland bird still present today, with two little egrets around Hempholme. The short eared owls were also on the go again today – 2 being seen around D res.
Again visit the Flickr page where there are some of the latest pictures on view such as Tony’s great pic here.
