Went up to the Thacka flood this morning taking Kyfer & Misty (the westies ) with me. A fair amount of activity too this morning , with the following seen.
2 Lesser Black-backed Gull + 1 immature, 1 Common Gull, c.50 Black-headed Gulls, 250 t0 300 Lapwing, 6 Jackdaws, 1 Stock Dove, about 12 Starling, 2 Pied Wagtail, 2 Goldfinch feeding on thistle heads, and a flock of 20 flew over. There was also numerous Crows about and rooks , so not a bad morning , apart from the fact that unlike yesterday there was no sun shining but still quite mild. The picture is a bracket fungi common name Tinder fungus , which I found near Surprise view over in Borrowdale mid week . All for now GW.
