For the first time in a long time I did not manage to record a new species this week. Nonetheless there was still something interesting to see and photograph.
My first "Large White-headed Gulls" of the Autumn. This adult above and a juvenile below. Species tbc.
They flew in together and did a few circuits before heading off again. I checked my records and I last saw large gulls here during week 6
There were two of these White-winged Terns patrolling up and down above the dams, occasionally diving down to catch small fish. This one landed on the grass to take a short break from feeding
A nice sharp image of a Grey Francolin
One of the Little Grebes that seem to have taken up residence on the dams recently
