More Meds

The Med's are back in numbers! At Holbeck today I had 4 adult winters and 1 first winter Mediterranean Gulls, previous to these sightings there has been a couple of 2nd winter birds, so things are looking up again this Autumn with the presence of the Med's back at Holbeck.

If you are thinking of trying to photography these birds, a word of advice - bring some bread!! Throw the bread on to the grass, wait a few minutes and the Black Headed Gulls will appear, soon followed by the Med's.

Hungry Med

The Mediterranean Gulls have started to visit regularly again at Holbeck Car Park. The above individual was the only bird showing that day, but was very obliging and was patrolling the verges of the car park picking up worms.
