Is It Really Spring?

The weather certainly says it is, as do the few singing Chiffchaffs that are about. But that's it... well it was for today anyway!

No summer migrants for me anywhere, in fact it was a day of very little with an
Iceland Gull on the river being the best. Here's a photo showing an area of an Iceland Gull the average photo doesn't show...

Just look how stripey those undertail coverts are!

A few Black-tailed Godwits feeding on the near shore encouraged me to take a few snaps of them too...

Just starting to look red, in nice light

Let's hope the weather change that is predicted for next week ups the birding quality!
