Three lifers this week! First winter Iceland and Glaucous Gulls on Monday at Astley Lake and a female Long-tailed Duck on Wednesday at Pugneys. No pictures though. The Gulls were just too far away and the Long-tailed was diving frequently.
That takes me to 171 on Bubo, but 172 on Bird Journal, as their BOU list allows Ruddy Shelduck. So only 9 (or 8) left to get my target of 180 for the year. Modest, but achievable.
Must do better with the photos next time!
