Inevitably the red-head smew scarpered the minute I realised what I was looking at:
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.

A rather vocal herring gull at Felixstowe Ferry today:
I'd be more than happy about this Dunnock capture, Alan. In my patch, I just can't find any. It's driving me slowly crazy ...
I'm quite shocked to hear Hering Gull is found on the Red List already! Not good at all. Real sad indeed.
In reply to James:
Fantastic Jim! Definitely wrong thread!

The colder - the Kingfisher : often see my rare neighbour on frosty days - strange. Wasn't happy with my results of Wren and Kingfisher - don't see them so often , and then my shots only serve for this thread
