Black Headed Gull, we seem to be seeing a lot of those recently.

A couple of not so common sightings from yesterday,
The morning saw plenty of starlings around again, but this one provided the best photo opportunity,
And this rare old bird flew overhead, a Mustang P51

That's not a Mustang..... it hasn't got a mane or tail!

Awww, bless that little blue tit; they do get worn out at this time of year but I'm sure it's enjoying a few free mealies. We have another batch of house sparrows that fledged; I now realise the fun I've been missing not seeing them at the last garden lol
the little darlings lol

Poor thing AJ, looks like its been dragged through the nest backwards!

And finally, some mares tails (for PB's benefit, the ones without manes ).....
"Mares' tails and mackerel scales make lofty ships to carry low sails."
Or more correctly, cirrus clouds, often a sign of a change....
If you're wondering, we had a mackerel sky this morning, and a very brief light shower later on....
Lovely pics everyone. Here's a few from me …….
then into a grey patch of cloud - pity really
even the polo ponies were finding it too hot today !
