Franklin's Gull: I was sitting in Nando's with Dawn, the baby and a very nice veggie bean burger when I saw the Franklin's gull ping up on my phone. After it was found yesterday in Bradford it had now been relocated up at Redcar Tarn.
It was showing well in a hseep field at the back of the Tarn before it flew on to the water itself.
So to see one so close to home is pretty special indeed.
Hale Lighthouse - Friday Afternoon
Sabine's Gull: It's been a really good week for gulls picking up this smart juvenile Sabs gull only half an hour down the road at Hale Lighthouse ad now this franklin's gull an hour or so up the road.
A good couple of days birding. I love a good gull.
