Yesterday I said to Steve…

…I am going to France tomorrow so something good will turn up nearby. Many a word spoken in jest as I had a call in the afternoon with news of a Black-throated Diver at a local country park. Can’t see this one staying until I get back on Friday! Anyway, back to my trip to France visiting my sister near Abbeville. From the ferry six species of gull were seen plus Fulmar, Kittiwake, many Gannets, several Auks and best of all a Great Skua which was harassing a Gannet. Unfortunately this was seen in French waters. In France we had stopped at Etaples War Cemetery where an unidentified Swift species was seen. An interesting sighting. That was it for the day but although this is not a birding holiday my sister and I hope to get out and about at some stage.
