Some Dross

A couple of short jaunts on the patch this week, and just the usual dross, the Kestrel that has been wintering on the airport, finally decide to cross over to the patch on Saturday and the early Shelduck is still at the back of the loch. This morning, doing the daily scan of the bay from the living room window, picked up the first year male King Eider off the end of Little Holm - a room tick ! I'd already house ticked King Eider with this one from the kitchen window in 2008. After the storm, with the beaches all stirred up, there were Gulls everywhere, but no white-wingers.

Common Gulls

Black-headed Gulls.
