post holiday birding blues

Well, as usual, I am suffering after being on a great trip and cannot face birding in Northumberland......this took me months to get over after India in January, but I will make the effort to get to Dru at the weekend, promise, anyway I need to do my WeBS count...counting Mallards......mmmm........not quite the Elkhorn Slough...

Anyway, as I can't be arsed to go to Dru, here are some more pics from the states.
Heermans Gull - San Francisco
Western Gull - not on my car thank fek

Whats up with you man ?!! You need to get a grip sir...

I'm sure here's still good birds to be found in Northumberland at this time of year....

That Ivory Gull could be sitting on the beach at Druridge right now !!

Hume's YB in the bushes maybe.... or an Arctic Redpoll in all of those Alders...

BT Thrush with all the Redwings on the roadside hawthorns...

King Eider bobbing about offshore....

Think positive, rares often come when you least expect them !!

Very nice pics BTW !
