Great to see a pair of Owls hunting successfully. Even though the Kestrel robbed one of their catches they were still finding plenty of voles.
The photo challenge turns up some odd choices. I went out to photograph the returning Razorbills, got my photos and then came across this Glaucous Gull. Well, I had to post the Glaucous Gull because I can always go back another day and snap the Razorbills.
I am saving some of the common birds for next winter.
Today I went back for the Razorbills but they were in the shade and many had left the cliffs and were feeding offshore. I then spotted a Meadow Pipit and got a lovely picture. Photo sorted for today, No! Later I saw this Grey Wagtail and decided to post this today because I can photograph a Meadow Pipit almost any day of year.
Soon to be my photo of the day.
Winter Aconite (?)
I think I'll have a week of plants next week to save more of the common birds for a later day (unless of course I see a rare/scarce bird).
The Herring Gull (see last blog post) was ringed at a landfill site in Yorkshire and the Mediterranean Gull was ringed in Poland.
