Kumlien's Gull

a late decision to head up for the Barmston Kumlien's Gull and it was howling and cold with occasional hail showers -- bird was feeding on mussels and occasionally trying to rob the Oystercatchers of their's -- nice subtle bird and as usual with gulls so much difference in appearance with differing lighting 

Richard's Pipits

windy at Flamborough as well -- the second time I have seen a flock of 3 in the UK the last being at Donna Nook in autumn --


not a bird I often get anywhere near in Lincs -- took advantage of these by the Kumlien's
