Another weekend's over, and it followed on in a similar vein to last weekend - trip to the tip followed by social engagements on Saturday, Sunday spent seeing little locally while completing all the shenanigans involved in re-doing our bathrooms. With the weather once again mild, it was relatively hard work on the tip with birds pretty flighty as they didn't need to feed.

Highlights overall included a couple of Caspian and Yellow-legged Gulls (an adult and 1st-winter of both species), an adult Mediterranean Gull and a few ringed gulls - mainly local birds as usual, but with a Norwegian GBB Gull thrown in and Herring Gulls from Norfolk and Suffolk thrown in.

So, with perhaps a bit of colder weather forecast from an easterly direction during the next week, it'd be nice if next weekend was a bit more fruitful. Five days of work between now and then to deal with though.
