A field full of gulls

This afternoon the field opposite the house was being ploughed, by five o’clock there were at least a thousand gulls to be seen. As I was cooking dinner I didn’t have much time to search through them properly. However from the time I did spend I can say that around 95% were Lesser Black-backed withe the remainder being split between Herring and Black-headed. It was quite an impressive sight and it was a shame that I couldn’t spend some time looking at them as gulls are certainly one of my weak points and the chance to scan them from the comfort of home would have been great. Also with them were many Jackdaws and a couple of Buzzards. Certainly not a good time for the worms.                                                   For the evening dog walk I went to Draycot and saw one of the Little Owls for the first time for a while. Also here were a couple of Roe Deer.
