Friday lunch time at work I popped down to Scarborough harbour, it coincided with high tide and I hoped to see a few Purple Sandpipers, 61 reported recently on a harbour wall.
No Purple sandpipers but thanks to Steve Race (See blogs I follow) for pointing out a first winter Little Gull (header shot) and likewise Kittiwake. I think the Black Headed Gull is, well I know an immature, also first winter?
A day of firsts?
First winter Kittiwake
Black Headed Gull
The light was difficult with bright sun, time too short but it was great to see these birds.
