A Taste of the Med
Just a quick post to tell you of an addition to my garden list (if I kept one) that I had late afternoon today. As I sat down in the conservatory with a coffee to start reading 'Greenshanks' by Desmond and Maimie Nethersole-Thompson, I glanced out of the window and there on the bungalow roof just beyond the end of my garden was a full summer plumaged adult Med Gull! I grabbed my bins and had a good look at it and thought about running for my camera, but it then took off, flew round and headed off to the north. Not rare by any means, but one I wouldn't have predicted for the garden!
