Dark nights again!

The joys of winter. Dark nights and gulls.

Another weekend at Tophill Low NR, East Yorkshire. No dragonflies on Saturday, few gulls or any avian highlights.

This Stropharia caerulea Blue Roundhead, the fungi highlight

Sunday saw me back spending an afternoon looking over D res rather than twitching Filey, North Yorks for a Swift.

A good number of gulls, maybe 14,000, though with movements in and out all afternoon, its is difficult to work out the maximum number of birds. Highlight of sitting looking... an adult Med Gull which dropped in for about 4 minutes mid-afternoon before flying north and not returning by the time the light went.

Bit of Skylark movement - 21 west noon til dusk. Maybe I should've counted all day.
