22/09 - 'Viz-mig' From The Desk

Whilst working this afternoon I had a busy little spell of sightings from the window including two garden ticks, the first of those was an adult Mediterranean Gull that lifted from the fields north of the house where c.100 gulls have been feeding behind the plough all day. Long overdue given we are directly inland from Med Gull central at Newbiggin.
The other garden tick wasn't a bird but a splendid female Southern Hawker that grazed around both the willow and one of the garden mallows, only the second dragonfly species for the garden ever!

Other birds noted included c.50 Pink-feet north, a single Greylag flying southeast, up to four Buzzards including a 'kettle' of three, 1 perhaps two Sparrowhawks, a single Kestrel, Chiffchaff and 4 Long-tailed Tits.
