Icy Harbour

Cormorants in Amble harbour

Kingfisher in of three

Spent the afternoon in Amble and went down to the harbour to see if any white winged Gulls were around but I didn't see any. I'm not into gular pouches but among the 30+ Cormorants in the harbour the above pics look like a Sinensis, there was two in the harbour. Amble felt the coldest I've known it for a number of years. Before that a walk around Carlisle Park in Morpeth I noticed Blue tits and a Stock Dove keeping guard over nest holes. The Kingfisher was in exactly the same spot as yesterday in a bush below Telford bridge next to St Georges church.

Well I never, I was wandering the harbour today from 12 - 1pm. Must have just missed you! Med Gull on the Little Shore was about it really...

I walked the dog along the little shore but couldn't find any Med Gulls but the Gulls were flying all over the place. All I remember that it was bleak! Pity I missed you.
