Been busy lately so no updates. a quick photo update...
I had Monday and Tuesday off and managed to get to Minsmere and took in links road car park on the return journey. No amazing sightings at Mins however the Bittern in front of Island Mere hide was a highlight. Gulls became a slight headache after being told that a particular bird was an adult caspian, turns out it probably was a yellow legged, however I did manage to pick out a contender Caspian eventually.
Above pics show the Yellow legged gull (reported as Caspian)
Possible Caspian gull subadult?
Got a cracking Iceland Gull at Lowestoft, been present all winter but finally decided to go back via said car park, lovely little gull, much paler than I expected too.
Got my first sand martins of the year yesterday afternoon at Strumpy and Chiffchaffs seem to be filtering through in numbers now.
