Back in southeast London

After all the travels recently, it was nice to actually be able to spend the morning trawling through the usuals in Rotherhithe and slightly further afield in southeast London. Loads of Black-headed Gulls on the river, and Common Gulls have returned in numbers. Just a couple of miles further east in Greenwich, the quality was upped somewhat. A couple of Black Redstarts were mooching about an area of derelict land, with a male showing particularly well pecking about, rather unperturbed by my presence.

I also found a nice adult Mediterranean Gull on the Thames by the Anchor & Hope pub late morning, and after showing well for a bit on the water it flew onto the nearby barges showing off what appears to be Polish bling. Before I headed off home, I had a good chat to a couple of Charlton fans looking forward to their game against a Keen-less Blackburn just a few hundred yards away.

PJN0 - research suggests a Polish origin
