Popped into the Sands Lake this evening just as the light was going to have a look at the gulls - just the usual, a few Common Gulls in with the Black Headed and Herring Gulls.
About 40 Tufties on the south side of the lake, Cormorants, Coots, Mute Swans, Moorhens etc.
Earlier I'd driven over Plex Moss, where flocks of Starlings, Woodpigeons and corvids are in the stubble.
A few skeins of Pink Feet up in the air, but a larger flock was feeding out of sight between Plex and Carr Moss Lanes, so out of sight, apart from a few small groups that broke off from the main herd.
Stonechat, Buzzard, Kestrel, Red Legged Partidge and about 70 Swallows and House Martins feeding at the west end of Plex.
A bit of a quiet afternoon, apart from the sword fight I had with my five year old godson Spud - he has a fine career as a pirate ahead of him.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies....
