New Year Mediterranean

Happy New Year everyone!

A look round the LDV under azure skies was a great way to start the year and to blow away the remnants of last night's hangover. I couldn't find the drake Smew or any Scaup, but it was great to see all the regular birds in the valley, lit by the low winter sunshine. The highlight was an adult Mediterranean Gull that dropped in with 200+ Black-headed Gulls at North Duffield Carrs mid-morning. It headed off west after 20 minutes.
