Autumn gathers pace................

Well it's not been too bad a week birding-wise. Considering I'm stuck at work all day, and will be throughout August apart from the bank holiday. But on Monday evening there was this 2nd winter Med Gull at Croxden Quarry. If you're wondering which one it is, look for little bits of black on the primaries:

And yesterday evening, with most of the day being rather wet, was this juvenile Wood Sand at Uttoxeter Quarry:

At one stage accompanied by a Green Sand, and also a Common Sand at one point. Not often you see those three waders together.

So that was all rather splendid. I wonder what the weekend will bring? Probably not much now, but we'll see.
