10,000 HITS! Thank you...

Broke the barrier today. Many thanks to all who have bothered to read my ramblings. I hope you have enjoyed (some of) it? Off to watch the lad at Taddy tonight so just had a quick peep (in vain) for a Garganey, LRP etc


Text from Andy as we're about to leave...GLAUCOUS GULL NDC from Garganey Hide!!!
Change of plan. Down rather quickly and into the Geoff Smith hide as I reckoned I could 'scope it from here. Andy gave me some initial info i.e. was it still there! There was a decent group of large gulls (unusual for Duff especially with the low water level) and he gave me an idea of where to look as I was aware they wouldn't hang around for long. Anyway, within a couple of minutes it appeared out of the crowd...TREMENDOUS (85).

Record shot - but not bad considering the distance and light!

My third record following a 3w on 26/2/04 and a juv on 16/2/08. Iceland next?

Alan... congrats on the 10,000 hits. A good honest read of life in the field and some top tunes!

And not a bad birding start to the year.
