Med Gull video

Med Gull

Although it looked like an adult bird, this is actually a 'third-summer'. There were a few dark edges to the outer primaries when it was flying, otherwise it looked just how an adult Mediterranean Gull should. Broom GP, 28th May 2007 by Steve Blain.

Making a new friend


A newly fledged Robin paid me a visit as I made some adjustments around the garden pond on May 19. Spot the piece of pipe feeding the back of the stream which needs to be hidden a bit better ;-)
