Farmoor Sunday 23rd April

I made another visit to Farmoor first thing this morning which was as grey and dull as the last time I came, although it did brighten up later. The Bonaparte's gull was again on the south side of FII flying around annoying the Great crested grebes and snatching their fish as soon as they came up from a dive.I managed to get more shots of the bird but the light really wasn't that great!

Farmoor Bonaparte's gull 20th April

I finally managed to find some time to catch up with the Bonaparte's gull at Farmoor this morning, unfortunately it must of been the most miserable day of the month so far with low cloud, mist and rain. Luckily the bird was showing well stood on a platform on the south side of FII with a Black headed gull. The bird looked almost as miserable as the weather. Fortunately I was able to grab a few shots.
