tick

Site tick today - one I've been waiting for since I started this listing business.

I saw a large gull and thought 'that looks suspiciously black backed'. Then it very conveniently landed a couple of butresses down from a Lesser Black Backed and I thought 'Oh. Can't argue with that then.' Yes! despite the drizzle, I braved Tower Bridge today and was rewarded with a close up of a Greater Black Backed gull. Having seen one close up, and having now seen it next to a Lesser, I don't think I'll ever confuse the two again.

Sometimes birding in this area can be like pulling teeth. But I wouldn't have it any other way.

Also bought an Ibanez guitar off ebay and saw West Ham beat Hull. It's been a good day.

Site list - An awesome 18
