More Mandarins

Talk about good luck - Searched the river again at
Wrench Green Bridge, but no ducks in sight, started
to look through my camera at a flock of Rooks in the
ploughed field right of the bridge and guess what I found?

White Stork - A Closer Visit

The White Stork that had visited Wold Newton a couple
of weeks ago ringed in Holland, re-appeared in the village
of Irton just down the road from were I live (how convenient).

Turnstones at Scarborough Harbour. It was rather
sad to see that the bird in the first pic above had only
one leg, yet this bird was in a flock of 8 birds and
seemed quite happy.
