Wot no gull

Had a visit to QE2 today in the hope of seeing an Iceland Gull , but it was gone.
So I decided to do a bit of sketching with so many others about,

I seem to have recorded a couple of shapes which dont yet appear in Collins Bird Guide, but never mind I'll keep at it.
A wander around part of the lake provided the opportunity to see Siskin, Goldcrest and Bullfinch.

Killy Smew

Got over to Killingworth this morning to see the Smew on the small lake. I was surprised just how close the bird came to the edge of the lake.

I like the way the feeding geese flocks always have at least one member on the look out for danger.
