1s med gull at shibdon ''nice bird''
Sunday, 31 March 2013
Still no migrants to report today :( they will arrive sometime soon? first off was burdon moor where 9 pink-footed geese flew over heading NE, 500+ golden plover, 10+ meadow pipits, little owl, 5+ skylarks, 2 grey partridge, snipe, red kite were the highlights. Next was the reed beds at birtley, then lamesley and the vicarage pool, where there was nothing to report today :( Shibdon pond had 2 kingfishers, whooper swan, 3 tufted ducks, sparrowhawk, bh gulls, common gulls, lbbgulls, herring gulls, 2 mute swans, teal, coots, moorhens and later in the day a 1s med gull showed well in front of the hide. Might be on foot tomorrow? looking at the wind direction it might not be good for any migrants for a few days yet :( did manage to add Lesser black backed gull and Canada goose to my garden year list :) something to get excited about anyway!
