Iceland Gull, Nightingale and Others

Sunday 8th to Tuesday 10th May 2016
Iceland Gull, Longney Crib (in Grain-o-visionTM)
An immature Iceland Gull at Longney Crib on 10th May was nice to see after dipping it the previous evening. This late date bird was almost the same date as my sighting last year with Andy of an immature Iceland Gull seen on the river at WWT from the Holden Tower. 
On the local patch I recently managed to photograph this Nightingale, no mean feat!

On Sunday, an Amigos day out taking in Frampton and the Forest, 92 species, finished at WWT on a very warm afternoon, with very close views of a Common Sandpiper on WWT South Lake
