I decided once again on a short trip out to Sands Lane, mainly to get out with the new camera and practice. The number of Gulls was low when I got there at about 3pm but started to build at about 3:30pm.The usual species were about Common Gull, Black headed Gull and Herring Gulls these birds being my subject once again for the flight shots and to hone my panning skills. There were also a few more people about as it was a bit sunny and warmer than of late, all coming to feed the Mute Swans and Mallards. The Goosander numbers had built up but once again to far out for photos, a pair of Pied Wagtail put in a brief appearance as also did a single Grey Wagtail, people numbers putting these off.
Later on I went to a local site hoping for a Barn Owl sighting, this didn’t materialize as it got darker and darker, compensation came with a few Tawny Owls calling, Lapwing were also back on the breeding site.
