After work I took the camera out to Cossington Meadows with some hopes of photographing Dragonflies – no such luck – it was a bit too windy and/or the Brown Hawkers just wouldn’t settle. Checking out Tern Pool and Upper Marsh for waders including Dave’s Wood Sand – happily still there. I checked out the Gulls and Terns loafing on the mud on Tern Pool and straight away clocked a juvenile Mediterranean Gull – fucking result. That’s 136 for the year and 171 for the Soar Valley life list.
Unfortunately because I was only thinking about insect photography, I hadn’t put the big lens on the camera and I was travelling light so no photos I’m afraid.
