Tuesday 30 December 2008


A good day on the farm. The lake remained frozen all day. The 1st winter Iceland Gull (bottom) was on the ice, as was an adult Mediterranean Gull (above). A 1st winter Caspian looking gull was also present (below). Most of the Shoveler, Gadwall and aythya ducks had presumably found refuge else where. There were still 50+ Teal on the scrape.

Presumably if this weather keeps up we might see something in the way of cold weather displacement.

Checked in on the Long-eared Owls- there were still two or three on the bridge.

Lapwing on ice

Spent an hour in the evening trying out my new i-pod in Beddington Park. Called in a couple of Little Owls.
