Foxhill gull snapping

                  Foxhill Common gulls




  Winter plumage speckles showing now
                                       Black Headed in full winter plumage.
                                   Canon 7d 420mm


Took the camera on the dinner time dog walk in Foxhill park just to get the cobwebs off it from lack of use . Several gulls around with 24 Common and 18 Black Headed , the first light count of Commons in the park is now at around 70 which is average for this time of year.
A strong westerly was blowing threatening rain by tomorrow and hopefully wafting so Pinkies our way instead of sticking to the west of the country.
Whooper Swans are now on their way down from Iceland so keep an eye on your local reservoirs.
The conditions this morning were perfect for a Fieldfare invasion but this never materialized and had to make do with a few flocks of now established Redwings moving around in no certain direction.
The only movers first light were around a dozen late Meadow Pipits >S.

Nice shot's Bri. A camera certainly helps to keep things going.
