That time of year again..when I break up for summer and actually go out birding on occaisions after the midsummer doldrums. Last night 3 Little Gulls flew south past Corton Cliffs plus 2 Med Gulls and c.15 Common Scoter sat on sea. Many seals had their heads up above the flat calm sea. This afternoon a patch yeartick Whimbrel flew over tittering and 2 nice adult Med Gulls were lingering offshore. No sign of any Crossbill species during visits to larches in the area such as at Ashby but a nice Common Sandpiper was see at Lound Lakes.
