Spent the afternoon at Bempton Cliffs in the late May. Forgot how good a place it is and certainly had an upgrade since the last time I visited! As usual, took far too many photos and here is just the first batch of Gannets.
This adult Mediterranean Gull has been at Deeping Lakes the last few days, perhaps the same bird that has been at another local gravel pit displaying to Black-headed Gulls. If so it finally appears to have given up. A great looking bird.
This rather obliging worm gobbling Whimbrel was found by John Pasrsonage on Friday 10th May on the Pet Refuge car park. It remained all weekend, occasionally being flushed onto the East Pit of Deeping Lakes.
Josh Jones found a superb flock of Little Gulls at Baston & Langtoft GP this morning. The birds were hard to count but we got to 24 but it appeared others appeared so perhaps closer to 30 in reality. Josh also found 6 Black Terns on the same pit, two of which can be found far right on the first photo. A classic April day!
This sensational looking Red-necked Grebe was found by Hugh Wright on a pre-dawn visit to Deeping Lakes this morning. What an absolute beauty! The bird remained all day on the East Pit and attracted a steady stream of admirers all day. This is my fourth Red-necked Grebe at Deeping Lakes and my second in summer plumage.
