Med Gulls!

Managed to connect with 3 Med Gulls (H.102) this afternoon. I first picked one out flying over my head at the sewage works. Great views of this striking gull. By the time I'd sorted my camera out it was drifting off over Holmpton road.

It seemed to be loosing height and had possibly landed not far away.

As I made my way back to the car I spotted Phil who'd just pulled up. I put him in the picture and we both drove down the road to look for it. Sure enough it had landed in a ploughed field. A quick scan revealed a further 2 birds. This was my first multi-find of this species. Well chuffed!

Nice group of c20 Swifts over the fields. Also quite a few Common Terns, some flying inland.
