Mediterranean Gull

12th March and the adult Med' Gull reported earlier by Bill Aspin was still present on the
playing fields at Pleasington. It took me around half an hour to find, as the bird was not
present on arrival. It showed down to twenty metres or so, but couldn't get it to come to the bread i was feeding the Black-Headed and Common Gulls with.

Despite this i had some excellent views and managed some reasonable shots in the poor light. The bird had just a few white flecks on it's hood remaining but more or less 100 percent breeding plumage, lovely!

Driving back home, i chanced upon a  flock of c15 Waxwings flying over Lookers Garage at Burnley.
