Only got time for a quick blog update this evening as there is a certain rugby match going to start in less than a hour. I'm sitting here with a bottle of Brains SA (a fine welsh beer brewed in Cardiff) which is going down very nicely. Anyway, today started with a quick trip around the top of radipole to check out some of the new ditches in one of the meadows, loads of snipe in there and a Water Pipit which was until about 10:40 the bird of the day. Checked the pager and noticed that the words Ring-billed Gull and Radipole were in the same message. 5 minutes later it found myself watching a fine adult Ring-billed Gull sitting on the water with a load of Common gulls. Views were a bit distant but did managed a photo.
Thanks all folks, need to find my welsh rugby shirt and get me backside down the pub!
