Back out Birding at Last – 12/xii/14

After the best part of a month with no opportunity to get out for any proper birding, it was great to hand in all of my university assignments and go down to Blackpill. It was quite quiet there, with the only noteworthy species being the wintering Great-Crested Grebes offshore. The usual gulls were present in low numbers with only one Mediterranean Gull. There were a few House Sparrows around, which were a surprisingly late addition to my UBC list for this year. A Mistle Thrush showed well on the grass, along with a Rook and a few Magpie allowing for some photography.
