An O2 Casp again…

I will admit its not my favourite Casp on the Thames this winter, and at time can look like a real oddball, but it did behave brilliantly and was showing off the albatross pose, doing a great sounding long call and flying around nicely in different light so I couldn’t resist another post.

A rock pipit! – the first I’ve seen here, would really expect to see them towards the end of the month but must have been some movement, a meadow pipit was also present down river.

I bumped into Martin Hallam who had seen another 1st winter Caspian Gull with a ring on it just before I arrived. This bird later turned up in front of Rich and Dante who were enjoying a handful of casps at Thames Barrier park more info here .

Nice to meet you Martin, see you again.
