This cracking was one of the 4 Hawfich at Newport Cemetery
Just up road I had a look at Chetwynd Pool and the only birds of note were 52 Shoveler. Last year there was a Long-tailed Duck here and the only other good birds I've seen at this site in the past were 2 Smew together with a male Red-crested Pochard. That was also 100 years ago!
The only gull at Hortonwood was this adult Yellow-legged Gull I know I promised in my last post that there would no more gull photos, but I really didn't think I was goin to see or find anymore gulls of interest.
Ian Grant has had up to 8 Hawfinch at Newport Cemetery but I could only find 4 birds
This presumed near adult HerringxLesser-black backed Gull was the only large gull on Middle Pool
A first site record for me were 2 Stock Dove over Middle Pool. Surely they must be rare in this area?
