February 9th 2011

I use to spend many a lunch time in a previous life at Poole Park, Poole Dorset watching what was on the main lake so for me today was a journey down memory lane as I went to see the Long-billed Dowitcher and Ring-billed Gull that were present. Both were first winters and though they don’t have the same rarity value these days as when I first started birding they have occurred at the pond so good to have a chance to hone up my identification skills. They had been reported as showing well at times so enjoyed gathering enough notes and scribblings to make a decent sketch. Also 2 first winter and one 2nd winter plumage Med Gulls present.
