Gleaming! crappy record shot of the iceland gull
It's been heavy showers all day, but couldn't resist calling in after work, at least 12 blackwits on the fields with two whimbrel and three yellow wagtails perched on the fence. A few wheatears were on the grass and still c200 sand martins over the pool.
Rainbow...Pot of gold? - my arse! goldfinch maybe...with linnets

Spent Saturday ringing dipper pulli with John Richardson, Neil Anderson and Janet in Upper Coquetdale and the North Tyne, we did three broods of the ugly blighters, nice to get inland for a change.
