Lesser Black-backed Gull

Yesterday I managed my first long walk since being in Hospital. 4 Miles and by the time I got home I was very tired. Compare with two weeks ago when I averaged 7 miles daily and with energy to spare. Still, small steps, I do seem to be slowly improving.

My views on bird ringing are pretty well known so I will not whinge here.

In fact this is one of the more useful projects and has yielded many results.

Initially I thought this egg was from a goose. However I was corrected on twitter as it is not large enough. It is a big egg but not sure of the source.

Interesting to see the plumage colours under different lighting. All photos take within 5 minutes, but angle of sun and reflection showing quite a range of grey shades.
