The eagle-eyed amongst you will have detected a certain absence from
the marsh over the last week or so, well don't worry, Marshside's finest
are due to return tomorrow, after a tour of duty of Israel and the West
Bank (assuming all has gone according to plan that is).
More of that later, when I've got the sandflies out of my billies...
More importantly, what have we been missing?
Please let me know in the comments section.
Hopefully you've all had more than these young Herring Gulls, which I
photographed on Sands Lake in Ainsdale recently.
That said, one of the young gulls was uttering the most bizarre two note
begging call repeatedly - like a gull-version of Dupont's Lark, I kid
It stuck to the other bird like glue for most of the time.
Can't remember hearing one calling like that before - just goes to show
what you can come across on your doorstep.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
