Lesser-black Backed Gull - I glimpsed a chick on the chimney stack yesterday morning. Hopefully, I won't be rescuing one from the local teenagers this year!
Fulmar - I've seen a couple of birds over the last few weeks along the cliffs at Easington, so I took the lad for a stroll along the beach this morning. One of the first birds I saw was this species! I walked up the beach as far as I could (which wasn't very far), I had a few fly-by's but no evidence of landing although they circled a few times?
|A jizz shot!|
So, together with the Marsh Harriers at least 3 quality species "present in the breeding season" on the Patch.
Oh...and then there's the Little Terns of course!!! More on them later...
