Something near clear at last

                       Unusually high number of Starlings about

                Found this sp. in the park midday heading >S.

Luckily Tracy was right as always and the fog slowly cleared leaving low clouds but better visibility with busy skies over the garage although failed to connect onto any of the thrush movement reported today.
Armed with camera at lunchtime I headed up the park but only the usual small gulls and high numbers of Starlings plus the above sp.  heading south from Soil Hill.
Denise called at the garage today to pick up her trophy and managed to hide her excitement well although after getting 3 Brambling in her garden the trophy was a bit of an anti climax.
We usually get a famous celebrity to hand over the prize but unfortunately NK was up Soil Hill at the time.
Hopefully the cold spell due will liven things up a bit over the weekend.

No wonder all those gulls suddenly took flight.

is it a first sighting of the rare red legged, back packing NK? it looks to be in full winter plumage. Probably lost and should have been flying home by this time,,,,,,,,,,,but,,,I could be wrong.
